Roman Camps round Cleghorn | Clydesdale’s Heritage
See on - Archaeology News

The camp which is shown in Roy’s Military Antiquities is on the right bank of the Stobilee Burn 570 metres NW of Cleghorn Mill where the road from Castledykes to Carluke and Bothwellhaugh crossed the Mouse Water.

The camp itself amounts to 46.7 acres(18.9 hectares) which would have accommodated a force of about twelve thousand men (two legions). The camp is shaped like a parallelogram and well suited to the topography of the area.

There are indications from an examination of Google Earth of a small fortlet on the high ground to the North.
