main image Replica crannog, Loch Tay, Kenmore, Perthshire
This replica lake dwelling or 'crannog', on Loch Tay, is of a type used in Scotland from about 500 BC until the 16th century.

Crannog sites are found predominantly in the west of Scotland, both highland and lowland, though they also occur elsewhere.

In many cases their remains can be seen in the form of low mounds near the shores of lochs, perhaps with some remains of a link to the shore. The Government finally banned their use in the 16th century.
