Dunning Roman Camp, Perthshire, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on evidence for a Roman Marching Camp at Dunning, Perthshire, Central Scotland.

The remains shown in these images and video clip represent the northern rampart of a fortified marching ( short-term) camp which was enclosed within a shallow ditch and palisade constructed by Roman troops. Other pertinent information:

  • Probably dates from the Flavian campaigns of the AD 80s and as such may be contemporary with the Inchtuthil site which featured on March 28th 2014.
  • Extended to 115 acres and deemed to be of the ‘Stracathro‘ class of camps.
  • Located about half a mile outside Dunning on the left of the B935¬†road to Forteviot.
  • The features shown herein are enclosed within Kincladie Wood, a 20 acre site of ancient woodland now managed by Dunning Community Trust.

For detailed information on the site refer to this web page.
