Dalbeattie Marching Camp

Possible Roman Camp

This suspected camp was discovered in 1982 lying on flat ground between the Water of Urr and the Dalbeattie Burn. The full circuit is unknown but there is room enough on the site for legionary sized encampment. J and J Andrews 1983 do not think it is a Roman Temporary Camp.
There is a group of six marching camps a few miles to the north-west at Glenlochar.
