Overview

The kids getting a bit bored with their Play Stations, Nintendo DSs and X-Boxes? What better way to make them realise how easy life is these days than with a trip down to the Scottish Crannog Centre, Aberfeldy, where Iron Age life by the loch is recreated. That means children get crash courses in ancient bushcraft skills such as wool-spinning, wood-turning and fire making and can try on Iron Age Cloaks similar to those worn by their peers 2,500 years ago. Listen to a costumed guide explain the history inside the recreated crannog (Iron Age lake-dwelling), see the exhibition of some of the 2,500-year-old artefacts discovered underwater. Open daily for tours plus many themed events throughout the season.
