Romans & POWs – Ardoch and Cultybraggan Camps
We first visit the first century Ardoch Roman camp at Braco. Ardoch fort was one of the early forts on the Gask Ridge, and at one time was one of the largest Roman stations in Britain. Although no buildings remain, the defensive earthworks are historical and are an impressive location to visit.
Next we visit a more modern, but still historical and impressive, location – the former POW Cultybraggan camp, just outside of Comrie. Here we will stop for lunch and then be given a tour of the camp.
Cost includes charge for Cultybraggan tour.

The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
