Antonine Wall

Take a walk through history, here in North Lanarkshire, follow the route of the Antonine Wall a UNESCO world heritage site

Almost 2,000 years ago, Emperor Antonius Pius ordered the construction of an east to west wall, stretching from what is now Old Kilpatrick to modern day Bo'ness. The Antonine Wall was intended to be the Northern frontier of the Roman Empire in Britain, but lasted in that capacity only about 20 years.

Fast forward to the present, however, and the Wall still has an important role to play. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2008, now it offers a valuable glimpse into ancient times and we are very fortunate to have a section of it running through Lanarkshire.

Making sure that insight is preserved for future generations, improved access and signage along the route of the Wall offers great walking between Castlecary and Croy. Look out for the impressive sculptural gate featuring two Roman guards at the Castlecary entrance which sets the scene.

Choose to be either leisurely or energetic as there’s any number of long or short walks possible in this area, steeped in history. It is well served with existing paths, some level and well surfaced however others are unsurfaced or steep and only suitable for those on foot.
