Crannog, Loch Tay

    Newer Older

    This is a working replica of a Crannog on Loch Tay. It is an example of an ancient dwelling used over 5,000 years ago in Scotland and Ireland. There were 18, that they know of, built on Loch Tay alone. Some of the off shore islands in lochs today have risen from the debris of these collapsed dwellings.

      Excellent reflection shot of the still dark waters. I like this almost primative looking building on the lochs. Such a barren landscape, it really does look like the ancient times. Quite a history lesson.

      The detail on the far side is astonishingly beautiful and the Tay crannog never looked better!

      This is the first time I have come across your work and with this eye, and your interest, I recommend posting to the Economic and Social History Group - People and their Industry.

      Great work!
