Antonine Wall

Antonine Wall Review

West of Falkirk, Bonnybridge is home to the most extensive remains of the Antonine Wall, a 60-mile-long Roman earthwork fortification that marked the northernmost limit of the Roman empire. Built around 140 AD as a defense against the warlike Picts of the north, it was abandoned some 20 years later. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the wall was site of a famous battle in 1298, when William Wallace was defeated by the English. To get here from Falkirk, take the A803 west.
