Watch-tower

The platform of the Gask House watch-tower is 45 feet in diameter and lies to the south of the military road. It was excavated in 1900. This watch-tower along with others spaced almost uniformly along the Roman military road into the north-east formed an early Roman frontier along the Gask Ridge in Tayside.
