Scope and Content This image shows the remains of a Roman marching camp. The site of this Roman Camp, which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, lies on top of the broad hill above the old ford across the River Dee. No traces of the west, south, and east sides of the camp can be seen in the now-cultivated fields. On the east side (as seen in the photo) a mutilated earth bank, with a slight ditch on its east side, runs northwards along the edge of the wood to its northeast corner. The farming settlement of Oldtown is at the R of the image. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
