Antonine Wall, Seabegs Wood
Antonine Wall, Seabegs Wood
Seabegs Wood is a small Roman fortlet on the course of the 2nd-century Antonine Wall. The remains consist of earthworks, a ditch, and a section of wall standing in attractive woodland.

Seabegs is one of the best places along the Wall to see the defensive ditch and rampart. Connected to the fortlet is a stretch of the Roman military road that linked forts along the Antonine Wall. This is one of the best preserved sections of road along the course of the wall.

The road ran parallel to the wall and was used for moving troops and supplies. At Seabegs Wood the road is 7m wide with a cambered mound in the centre.

Reaching the fortlet is straightforward. Seabegs Wood is 1 mile west of Bonnybridge, just south of the Clyde Canal on the B816 road to Castlecary. There is a well-signposted trail to the site.
