Hadrians wall

Hi, we are planning to drive to Hadrains wall from Edinburgh. Which are the best locations to see the key sights? Could you provide the driving distance / directions. We are not into long / strenuous walk; an hr walk is max we can do. Thank you.

It's 2 hours drive straight down the A68, turn right onto the B6318 - details of where to go are to be found on any number of websites specifically for Hadrian's Wall. you could return to Edinburgh (if that's your intent) via the A7 through Hawick

Housesteads Roman Fort is near Vindolanda (so both can be done in a day), and unlike the latter actually situated on the wall: english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/…

I did them both last year combined with a walk along the wall and the local area.
