Gask Ridge

Stretching for a distance of 10 miles (16 km) between Perth and Crieff in the heart of Strath Earn, Perth and Kinross, the Gask Ridge is formed by rising ground that separates the Pow Water to the north from the River Earn to the south. It formed part of the most northerly Roman frontier system in Britain, first constructed by Agricola in the 80s AD and comprising forts and watch-towers along a road linking Bertha near Perth and Camelon near Falkirk. Part of the Roman road can still be traced, while the sites of a signal-stations or watch-towers are marked near Innerpeffray, Ardunie and Findo Gask, and forts at Ardoch and Parkhead.
