Archaeologists have long been fascinated by the artificial islands, often known as crannogs, in Scotland’s lochs. The tendency has been to regard them as a discrete phenomenon and to focus on their role as prehistoric and early historic settlements. However, chorographic material, shows they were still in relatively widespread use, and performing a variety of functions, during the late 16th century. It also raises questions – certainly for the late medieval and early modern periods – about whether they should be seen as part of a broader phenomenon of loch settlements on artificial, modified and natural islands.
