The Roman fortlet at Sanquhar was discovered from the air in 1984, lying in Upper Nithsdale about 8½ miles (14 km) upstream from the (parent?) fort at Drumlanrig, at the confluence of the Crawick Water. It measures about 175 feet from north-west to south-east by about 130 feet transversely (c.54 x 40 m), enclosing an area of about ½-acre (c.0.2 ha) within a single V-shaped ditch almost 10 feet (3 m) wide; a single entrance is suspected in the centre of the north-west side.
