Hi folks,

Last weekend was the Celts are Coming event at the Crannog on Loch Tay. It's a weekend of traditional crafts at the Crannog which is an iron age roundhouse built on the Loch. We had some awesome crafts on show from David Mcgovern stone carving, Jon Mac spoon carving, Peter Annanin tanning, there was coracle building, plant dyeing, blacksmithing, bronze casting, traditional foods, music, story telling, all sorts. We were also lucky enough to enjoy a night sleeping in the crannog together, me and Fionn were toasty in the animal pens ;) It's such a relaxing event for me as the staff could not be more friendly or helpful, and it's such a magical place to be a part of.

I didn't get much of a chance to snap pictures, so there's only a few.

teaching a workshop on making a crannog bible bag, based on the Loch Glashan Crannog archaeological finds (my interpretation anyway)

David kindly (and very sneakily) gifted us this Pictish carving as a house warming gift, we were speechless!

Looks like another great trip, thanks for sharing, the 9th picture down with the 2 pairs of footwear, what are they made from, particularly the ones on the left ?
