The South of Scotland is littered with historical remains from the Roman and Iron Age. We invite you to time travel and imagine what it must have been like at the UK’s northernmost Roman encampment. Ponder the mysteries of the stone circles that inhabit the landscapes and marvel at the earliest of Christian crosses and carved stones.

The rolling hills of the Southern Uplands provided ideal sites for Iron Age hill forts while the easily accessible harbours of the south western coast provided landing points for sea voyaging travellers.

Head to Melrose, which was once home to the Roman’s most northerly camp at Trimontium. The town today is home to Scotland’s only museum dedicated to the Iron Age and Roman period. The Machars peninsula has a host of Iron Age sites including a replica Iron Age Round House in Whithorn. Imagine life in the awe-inspriring landscapes of the Esk Valley near Langholm, where a signed, self-guided tour of Roman and Iron Age sites await.
