Rough Castle, an ancient Roman fortress, lies underused and underappreciated.
It should be so much more. It should be experienced. It should be loved. It should be a beating heartbeat of our community. And so it shall.
We’re going to use the land surrounding Rough Castle itself to present a variety of attractions, from winter wonderlands to summer events — experiences that will bring life back to the ancient woodland.
It’s not our woodland. It’s yours. So, come and experience it. Like never before.
The Antonine Wall – a UNESCO World Heritage site, was the Roman Empire’s north-western frontier. Built on the orders of Emperor Antoninus Pius in the years following AD 140, it ran for 37 miles (60km) across Scotland’s central belt, from modern Bo’ness on the Firth of Forth to Old Kilpatrick on the River Clyde.
When it was completed, The Antonine Wall was the most complex frontier ever built by the Roman Army.
Come and see it brought to life, experience a light and sound show that will transport you back in time in the heart of central Scotland, Falkirk.
