Rough Castle is the best-preserved of 16 forts that the Romans constructed along the Antonine Wall, built in 140 AD to form the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire, but abandoned after 20 years. It is accessible at the end of a track past an industrial estate, or from the Falkirk Wheel. It's an agreeable spot, much-loved by dog-walkers. The remains of the wall and ditch are clear and it's possible to pick out the outline of the fort's ramparts, ditches and gateways as well as the route of the military road that ran south of the wall. To the north of the fort are the fairly rare remains of defensive lilia pits. There excellent information boards giving general information and markers where the various buildings once stood.
