Kirkintilloch Roman Fort (Antonine Wall)

The Antonine Wall was built by the Romans across what is now known as the Central Belt of modern-day Scotland. The wall was 63 kilometres (39 miles), was about 3 metres (10 feet) high and 5 metres (16 feet) wide. Construction began in AD 142 and took 12 years to complete.

Nothing remains of the fort today nor the Antonine Wall. However, the fort was used during Scotland's Wars of Independence against the English in the 14th century. The Scottish built a stone castle on part of the Antonie Wall and the fort but the castle was, along with other remains, destroyed by Robert the Bruce after his victory against the Scottish in 1314.
