Overview

Visit the best examples of Roman stone structures on the Antonine Wall.

The fort which once stood at Bearsden is now mostly covered by roads and houses, but the bath house within its annexe can still be seen.

The well-preserved bath house and latrine give visitors an insight into the daily lives of the soldiers stationed along the Antonine Wall. Several artefacts have been found at the site, including:

  • the carved head of a goddess
  • a gaming board
  • a building stone inscribed by the men of the 20th Legion

Bearsden was one of 16 known forts along the Antonine Wall, which was built across Scotland’s central belt from AD 140. The wall formed the north-western frontier of the Roman Empire.
