Overview

'Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Antonine Wall was the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire. Built on the orders of the Emperor Antoninus Pius in the years following AD 140, it ran for 40 Roman miles (60 km) from modern Bo'ness on the Firth of Forth to Old Kilpatrick on the River Clyde.  Over time, the industrial and commercial heartland of Scotland has grown around it yet, unbelievably, one-third of its total length is still visible today. Archaeological excavations have demonstrated that much of the rest survives well beneath both fields and urban areas.'

Overview

'The benefits of establishing core paths are simple in that most people taking access in the outdoors do so by following paths and a network of formally identified routes makes for easier, more enjoyable, access opportunities for everyone. In this way it is hoped that core paths will assist landowners in managing access over their land and will receive resources to help maintain them and in some cases upgrade them ... The individual maps are available to view for free on our Website ...'
