Ardoch

Ardoch is a place in Perthshire, seven miles from Crieff in Scotland. At Ardoch are the remains of a Roman camp [ [http://tour-scotland.blogspot.com/2007/02/ardoch-roman-camp.html Ardoch Roman Camp] ] which included Ardoch Tower, part of the Roman Gask Ridge, which is said to be one of the most complete Roman camps in Britain.

Ardoch is also the place name of a small community between Cardross and Dumbarton, Scotland, straddling the A814 road on the north bank of the river Clyde. It comprises approximately 12 dwellings just inside the unitary border between West Dunbartonshire and Argyll and Bute.

Roman camp

Ardoch was one of a chain of marching camps which connected by one day marches in a generally north-south direction. Other Roman camps in this chain include Strageath, Inchtuthil, Battledykes, Stracathro, Raedykes and thence taking the Elsick Mounth to Normandykes.
