Fodor's Review

Here you'll find such artifacts as tools, weapons, and armor retrieved from the largest Roman settlement in Scotland, which was at nearby Newstead. A blacksmith's shop, several examples of pottery, and scale models of the fort are also on display. A guided four-hour walk along the 5-mile trail to the site departs at 1:30 on Thursday (also on Tuesday in July and August). The cost is £3.
