Not the easiest of access and 2km of single access track with the odd passing spot. The site is now fenced & gated & barely enough room for 3 vehicles and barely any safe turning. Obviously very popular with dog walkers. Hate to see this...More

Worth a visit to see the remains of an ancient roman wall and fort. Lots to see with interesting marker boards providing information of how life used to be. Worth a visit.

Parked at the Wheel. We used the printed map from the Falkirk Wheel Visitor Centre and got lost as it doesn't match the pathways- ask because when we walked back, it took us about 15 minutes but nearly an hour going! You have to use...More

If you've never heard of Antonine's Wall (and especially if you have), go to the Rough Castle section near the Falkirk Wheel. You can get there via the Wheel area, or you can park on the other side of the Rough Castle park area at...More

All the above advice. There really isn't much left of the actual wall. In fact I have seen none of the wall but only plaques where the fort and wall once were. But it is a pleasant area and an easy walk to the area near... More
