Antonine Wall: Bar Hill Fort

Antonine Wall: Bar Hill Fort
The highest fort on the Antonine Wall containing the foundations of the headquarters building and bath-house.

To the east sits a small Iron Age fort. The wall ditch runs past both. This is the best site to appreciate the strategic significance of the Antonine Wall and enjoy the superb views over the Kelvin Valley.
