The Antonine Wall, which forms part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site (which includes Hadrian's Wall in England and the German Limes) is located near Kilsyth in North Lanarkshire. The stone and turf fortification, built by the Romans across what is now the central belt of Scotland is also known as the Clyde-Forth frontier line.

Although most of the wall has been destroyed over time, sections of the wall can still be seen in Cumbernauld and Kilsyth.
