Falkirk historian to team with Historic Scotland to promote Antonine Wall

In 2008, the Antonine Wall, which runs between the firths of the Forth and Clyde in Scotland, was added to UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Now Historic Scotland hopes to team with citizens from the Falkirk district to promote the area as a tourist destination.

ÔÇťApart from its historical importance the wall and the whole Roman story can be a major tourist attraction which will be of immense benefit to the local community," said Falkirk Local History Society chairman Ian Scott, who plans to work with a committee on such proposals as "new walking and transport routes, a guide book, upgrades, improving the website, a mobile phone app, a visitor centre somewhere along the route, re-enactments and closer working with schools."
