The site of Castlehill fort lies in open fields on the western edge of Bearsden.
No remains are visible on the ground today but the site offers some of the best landscape views along the line of the Wall. Aerial photography show that the fort was mostly located on the east slope of the hill. Surveys carried out in 2008 identified gates, defences and some of the structures within the interior of the fort. Two distance slabs have been found here: one was built into a cottage at Castlehill around 1698 and the other was ploughed up in 1847.

Both can now be seen in the Hunterian museum. The site of Castlehill fort lies in open fields on the western edge of Bearsden, to the south of Duntocher Road, A810. The site is easy to locate because of a distinctive circular enclosed tree plantation that occupies almost half of the fort within its north-west corner.
