The Scottish Crannog Centre

Crannogs are a type of ancient loch-dwelling found throughout Scotland and Ireland. The Scottish Crannog Centre is home to the authentic crannog reconstruction, built by the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology. A living experiment, and now a 5 star visitor and educational centre with a Gold award for best practice in environmental management.

Take a look at some of the underwater discoveries in the exhibition; walk over water into the Iron Age on the crannog tour; and test your skills at ancient crafts and technology. In the Spring and Summer, you can also hire one of the dugout canoes, weather permitting. Special Events run regularly featuring artists, musicians, skilled craft workers and other specialists who, together with our own team of Iron Age guides, actively bring the past to life for adults and children alike from ages 4+.

2016: Open daily from 26th March to end October from 10am to 5:30pm; 30th Oct. from 10am to 4pm. Please allow at least an hour for your visit and preferably longer to fully enjoy the experience.

Circus Tots

A few weeks ago I came across the brand new ‘Circus Tots’ class, held on Friday mornings near Inveralmond. Freya knows no bounds at the moment when it comes to climbing, swinging and generally flinging herself off things, so I knew she’d love it.

Sing and Sign

Classes that help babies use gestures to communicate, especially helpful in reducing that oh-so-familiar build-up of frustration from not being understood by mum and dad!

Benefits of Weight Training

Many people go to the gym but neglect to do weight training sessions and focus just on cardio. There are multiple health benefits when you train with weights in the gym, including lowering your risk of diseases, improving your mental health and preventing back pain.

Robert Harrison may be 45-years-old, but the Blairgowrie resident continues to compete in triathlons to a very high standard. The school teacher is one of Perthshire's elite sportspeople and part of the Live Active Talented Athlete scheme.
