Bearsden: gearastan agus taigh-amaran

The best examples of stone structures along the entire Antonine Wall can be seen within a modern housing development in Bearsden.

The fort which once lay here is now mostly covered over by roads and houses, but you can visit the exposed remains of a Roman bath-house and latrine block within the area of the fort’s annexe.

These buildings provide a valuable insight into the rhythms of the soldiers’ daily lives. Several artefacts have been found here including the carved head of a goddess, a gaming board, and a building stone inscribed by men of the Twentieth Legion.
