The Dalerb Project:
The objectives of the Dalerb development project are to secure the long-term future of the Scottish Crannog Centre by creating an organisation with lived values, strong governance and democratic decision making; one that is diverse, reflective and has a “can-do” attitude
We will care for, interpret and research our collection, using academic rigour, immersive engagement and best practice, and we will grow and nourish the 21st century Crannog Community through meaningful relationships, co-production, and skills exchange. Through our work, and the way we work, we want to be an organisation that people want to support and an organisation with HEFT – one that is built on resilience and trust.
We aim to develop a site that sits in its locality, aware of its environment and with a need to be a beacon of sustainability, an integral part of the stunning landscape that is Loch Tay. This is where we will tell how the Early Iron Age crannog dwellers made the most of the world around them and how we will do the same in a sustainable, ecological way.

The project is built upon over 20 years of the Scottish Crannog Centre’s previous success as a Visit Scotland 5* visitor attraction. In the past four years, we have repositioned the centre to be development-ready by securing the collection, refurbishing the museum, and working alongside our communities to bring stories of Scottish crannogs to many different people in many different ways. Furthermore, we have shifted our perspective and now operate as a diverse community of learning that celebrates equality and equity. We believe that this approach expounds our values and best helps us to connect to the prehistoric crannog dwellers of 2,500 years ago.

Dalerb will become Scotland’s most sustainable museum and the Marketing Officer will work with the rest of the management team to embed this vision and our ethos into the Scottish Crannog Centre’s transfer to the Dalerb site.
