A magnificent dark stretch of water, Loch Tay is largest loch in Perthshire and one of the deepest in Scotland. Ancient settlers once lived on Loch Tay, inhabiting crannogs; man-made islands created for protection. There are eighteen crannogs on Loch Tay, mostly now submerged, but a large crannog near the northern shore can still be clearly seen. You can also visit an authentic recreation of an Iron Age loch dwelling at the Scottish Crannog Centre, Kenmore.
