NS3980 : Colquhoun Drive, Rosshead

taken 9 years ago, near to Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Colquhoun Drive, Rosshead
Colquhoun Drive, Rosshead
At the time of the first-edition OS map (c.1860), there were no houses in the area that is now called Rosshead. However, just to the north, in what is now Boathouse Wood, a building called Rosehead stood close to the point where a branch line left the main railway line. It seems likely that Rosehead, with a minor alteration, gave the area its name.

(The branch line mentioned above crossed the River Leven by means of what is now just a NS3981 : The Stuckie Bridge.)
