Explore Loch Tay’s Ancient Crannogs

This walk explores the ancient Crannog sites of Loch Tay.  Our visit will include the Scottish Crannog Centre as well as looking at the ancient historic sites around the village of Kenmore.  Our day starts with a drive to Loch Tay where we will be joined by our specialist guide.  We drive a short distance to Kenmore where we will discover the rich history of Loch Tay where remains of over 20 Crannogs have been found dating back over 2,500 years.

We return to the  Crannog Centre for our exclusive visit to the exhibitions and displays housed in the centre and see the reconstructed Crannog, a historic interpretation of how a Crannog was built an used by the occupants.  An important part of  the centre is the story of how the crannog sites have been rediscovered, excavated and interpreted.  We will discover how people built these amazing structures, how they used them and adapted them to suit their way of life.  We will also have the opportunity to learn about the many skills of the people of the times, how they made implements and clothing, what they ate, their stories and music and how they lived as a community.

The ticket price for this walk includes full entry to the Crannog Centre site.

The nature of the reconstructed crannog means that access along a walkway made of round logs can be an issue. There is more information available on the centre's website, linked from this page. Strong soled footwear is recommended for walking at the Crannog Centre and walking around Kenmore.

None specified.

1. Risk.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.

2. Children.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.

3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

4. Dogs.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).

5. Smoking.
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
