The Wall enters the golf course from the east just south of the 11th Tee on the Keir course, runs down the hill and turns SW under the cottage behind the 9th tee, heads off past the second green, across the road, the lake and then curves upwards to the west along the slope of the hill to the south of the practice area. An early drawing of the ditch survives which shows it running past the Dovecote (see Fig 1) and it can also be seen in the snow in winter (Fig 2). It meets the path behind the 18th tee on the Cawder course and runs uphill to turn west just south of the 17th green. A small mound running downhill from the path is likely to be the remains of the Wall itself (Fig 3). The ditch becomes clearly visible running across the 11th fairway into a wooded area where the line becomes difficult to follow (Figs 4 and 5).
There is no physical trace on the 10th fairway but the line of the Wall is known to continue just north of the Balmuildy road at this point where it then runs into Wilderness Plantation and then down the hill to Balmuildy Fort.
It was built during the reign of the emperor Antoninus Pius during the governorship of Lollius Urbicus and is fairly securely dated to around 142-143 AD.
It runs from near Bo’ness on the River Forth to Old Kilpatrick on the north bank of the River Clyde in the west.
