A crannog is a type of ancient loch-dwelling found throughout Scotland and Ireland and dating from as much as 5,000 years ago. Many crannogs were built out in the water as defensive homesteads and represented symbols of power and wealth.
The Scottish Crannog Centre features a unique reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling, built by the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology. This authentic recreation is based on the excavation evidence from the 2,600-year-old site of 'Oakbank Crannog', one of the 18 crannogs preserved in Loch Tay, Scotland. The STUA continues to explore other underwater sites in Loch Tay and further afield, regularly adding new discoveries to its award-winning centre at Kenmore, Perthshire.
