10. Kya the Iron Age Girl

Kya is a fictional character created for the Scottish Crannog Centre. She is 12 years old, very creative, curious and kind. She comes from a high status family living in a house built above the water on the shores of Loch Tay.

Her passion (at the moment) is music in all forms from birdsong to playing traditional instruments. She also loves to create perfectly round holes in stones. The best ones hang around her waist on her woven belt.

She is a match for any male and has been known to befriend urisks and has been known to tame Kelpies and then be able to call on them in times of need. This is what makes her an inspiring woman from a time before Perthshire was Perthshire.
