Overview

Visit one of the best preserved elements of the Gask Ridge frontier, the earliest known Roman frontier system. 

Muir O’ Fauld is one of the better preserved stations along the Gask Ridge, the line of the initial Roman invasion of Britain in AD 7980. The frontier was short-lived – the sites were abandoned in AD 87 or 88 when the Roman Army withdrew from Scotland. 

Today, the site consists of a circular mound, ditch and outer bank, with a causeway leading to the ancient Roman road.
