Bar Hill Fort Bathhouse is a bathhouse located within Bar Hill fort, along the Antonine Wall near modern Glasgow, Scotland.  Excavations of the fort first occurred from 1902 to 1905, during which the bathhouse was originally exposed. The site was re-excavated from 1978-1982, with the batthouse a focus of investigation. The bathhouse, which is notably long and narrow, contains latrines and two heated rooms, of which the latter may have been used later in its lifespan as a pottery kiln.
