In 1994, during construction of the Scottish Crannog Centre’s replica crannog on Loch Tay, the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology found the remains of a logboat over 10m long at Croft-na-Caber (MPK7026). It was made of oak, with moss caulking, and has provided a radiocarbon date of 1614–1416 cal BC (GU-10558). Even though no crannog dating to earlier than the Iron Age has been found in Perth and Kinross, this logboat demonstrates that people were travelling along Loch Tay during the Middle Bronze Age.
