Seabegs Wood is open year-round.

 

Overview

Walk in the footsteps of Roman troops along the Antonine Wall’s military road. Seabegs Wood features a well-preserved stretch of rampart and ditch, accompanied by a section of the Military Way, situated on an attractive wooded plateau. 

The Military Way, which connected all the forts along the Antonine Wall, is best seen at Seabegs Wood. It can be traced as a 7m-wide cambered mound with a visible road surface. Seabegs Wood was also home to a small military fortlet. 

Seabegs Wood stands 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.
