A Roman road passes close by, on the south side of the Avon Water, which led to the Roman fort at Loudoun Hill near Darvel.

Today it is a ruin, with a single tower and sections of wall remaining beside the A71. Use our United Kingdom route builder app to arrange the details of your trip to Strathaven and other destinations.
