Crannog
Crannogs are small artificial or modified islands constructed in a Scottish or Irish lochs. They were built to provide homes for individual or extended families. The earliest crannogs have been dated to around 5,000 years ago but many are thought still to have been in use into the 17th Century.
Crannogs are typically built on shoals in lochs and many have submerged causeways leading to them. Timber piles have been excavated at crannogs which suggest they could have been substantial and secure structures.
The Scottish Crannog Centre on Loch Tay has a reconstructed crannog. LinkExternal link
