Overview

'This is said to be an excellent feat of engineering by the Romans as there are lengthy cuttings and terraces where the bedrock has been exposed and used as the road surface ... Craik Cross Hill is fascinating because it was a Roman Watch Tower but then was reused with a cross marker stone on the hill. This may have been a route pilgrims used to get to Whithorn and so the cross would have been a sign to guide people there ...'
