DALGINROSS Perthshire, Scotland.

The Roman fort at Dalginross, 8 km W of Crieff, is square and measures 246 m (1.65 ha). Although unexcavated, it is presumably one of the chain of stations built in the late 1st c. A.D. to defend Strathmore against attacks by the Highland tribesmen. An earthwork, 4 ha in extent, which completely encloses the fort, may be either an annex or an earlier Flavian fort. A short distance to the S there is a large temporary camp of the Agricolan type.
