What have the Romans done for us?

They did lay the foundations for some great walking routes, one of which I visited last night. The Antonine Wall at Castlecary is one of the places soon to appear on a new leaflet “Antonine Walks in North Lanarkshire” to coincide with the renewal of access points to the route.

North Lanarkshire’s Access Officers have been working with Historic Scotland and local landowners to upgrade many of the access and crossing points, as well as renewing signage.

New signs along the route

The route should be officially opened soon, but it can be walked at any time. I walked the 4.5 mile section from Castlecary Hotel to Croy Miners Welfare Club, both of which allow parking and welcome walkers. I will post a full walk report in the near future.
