Hole in the Post
This is the view through the short end of the NO4499 : Information Post of the crannog in Loch Kinord. The long end of the post says that the crannog, or artificial island, was built about 2500 years ago and probably housed about 20 people, and perhaps their livestock as well. It is built of hazel wood on oak stilts. Crannogs were easier to defend than a hut on dry land. There is a replica of a crannog near Kenmore on Loch Tay - see LinkExternal link
