Abstract


This paper attempts to describe the signalling arrangements along the Gask Ridge in Strath Earn, and the influence these may have had on the general layout of the system of Roman installations, in an effort to understand the purpose and layout of the Roman line. It also reports on the re--excavation of a possible Roman fortlet close by the Gask Ridge tower of Midgate, Findo Gask, Perthshire. This juxtaposition suggests that the Gask Ridge fortlets may not be exactly contemporary with the towers. Although there is insufficient evidence to prove that the fortlets belong to another Flavian period, or to a different period altogether, the former may still appear more likely.
