Muir o' Fauld Roman Signal Station
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The site consists of a single earthwork bank with a ditch over three metres wide, enclosing an area about 16 metres diameter. The tower was square in plan and built of timber, with a post at each corner.
The area around Dundee and Perth is rich in Roman remains, with over 30 sites identifiable. Muir o' Fauld is one of the best-preserved of these, and one of several occupying the high ground of the Gask Ridge, where a Roman road can still be traced.
