Support the Scottish Crannog Centre's exciting development!
Together, we can keep the story going!
The Scottish Crannog Centre is an accredited museum in Kenmore, by Aberfeldy. The Museum has operated as a visitor centre for twenty years, but it is now a museum with all the responsibilities that follow. These are: a responsibility to engage communities near and far today; a responsibility to all communities of the future to look after the collections, buildings and landscapes under our guardianship; and, arguably the biggest responsibility of all, to tell the stories of those amazing crannog dwellers who built these fantastic structures 2,500 years ago and left us these very special objects.
We want to be a sector leading museum; a museum fit to tell our stories; and a museum that is democratic and engages diverse people - both those that work alongside each other and those that visit. We want to be a place of activism where leadership runs right through the organisation.
We have articulated our vision, agreed values that will shape how we are, and set a path to becoming a special place that is respected, loved and admired; a national treasure, that more than anything, matters to the public we are here to serve.
To achieve these goals, the Centre needs to be much larger in order to expand our potential and not be stifled by lack of physical space and the limits of our current lease. We are looking to buy the Dalerb picnic area through Community Asset Transfer, a piece of land which is around 12 times bigger than our current space. This land will be owned outright by the Scottish Crannog Centre and will allow us to use the space to develop into a national treasure loved by all.
By signing this petition, you will help to ensure we can purchase the land and continue to tell the story of the original crannog dwellers.
