The 5-star Scottish Crannog Centre has exhibits and activities to engage all interests from the specialist to the passer-by. Inside, some of the 2,500 year old artefacts are displayed with DVDs and interpretive boards while outside visitors can dress up and try several ancient crafts and technologies including fire-making without matches. Facilities include toilets, giftshop, snackbar and covered outdoor picnic area and dugout canoe hire. There is free parking, a bus stop outside the front door and racking for bicycles. Discounts are provided to groups and those who visit using sustainable transport.
Located in the shallows of Loch Tay, the centre is a stroll from Kenmore village, a few miles from Aberfeldy or Killin and within two hours of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.
The distinctive roundhouse sitting over stunning Loch Tay is one of the most recognisable sights in Perthshire, and draws on remarkable discoveries made by divers from the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology during their underwater excavations of Oakbank Crannog at nearby Fearnan.

Loch Tay is a short drive from any of our self-catering holiday cottages and a visit to the Scottish Crannog Centre would provide a fascinating family day out for anyone staying here in our area of central Scotland.
