Dating from the time of Agricola this is a very well preserved fort

Is part of the Gask ridge line of defence

No museum but if you are interested in the history of Roman Scotland this is a must visit location

Having visited a number of Roman sites in the past I was pleased to see how well the forts defence systems are still very visible.
The Roman road that runs from Braco to Muthill is also testimony to the enormous engineering projects the folk of Britannia learnt from.
Stunning

Very interesting site and was good to walk around it and think about how it was when the Romans were there. Additional information plaques would have been helpful.

As a child in Braco in the 1950s and 1960s this camp was out of bounds and we were chased off on more than one ocassion. The camp is huge, and there are a couple of later marching camps on the site, Earthworks were, probably still are at the junction of the A822 and B827. On the A822 towards Crieff there's a fortlet, Kaims Castle, at Orchill, part of the Gask Ridge chain of signalling forts.
The Roman road from Ardoch Camp north doesn't go past Kaims Castle but continues straight to Muthill when the A822 turns to Orchill. The road from Muthill to Crieff is straight but on a different alignment to the Braco - Muthill stretch. I have often wondered about the time line of these roads and forts. As they appear to be from different periods

Interesting site with a pleasant walk around the ramparts. A few information boards would be useful to explain the layout of the site.

The site is for a history geek, as has been said limited parking nearby
Poorly signed to get to and could do with map boards at the site to help you study the layout better, I would give it a higher score of these were better
Best views are on the opposite side to the main road.

There is limited parking over the bridge form the site . The site comprises 3 acres of earthworks and is said to be one of the finest examples of its type in Europe .The site was visited by Prince Albert and Queen Victoria in 1842. A large series of ditches and earth mounds are spread over the area . The true extent is viewed best from the air where the lines of the fort are clearly seen
