The photograph was taken from NS4660 : The Tannahill Walkway. Right of centre, on the near side of the woodland edge, some knolls caught my attention even from here; as I later learned, they are known locally as NS4660 : The Rocks; see that photograph for a closer look. The present photograph is intended to provide some context for that closer view.

That distant area caught my attention because it gave the impression of containing ruins. I did not have time to make a detour to visit the site on that occasion, but, on checking at home, I found that a farmstead, called Hillock, had stood there long ago. I photographed its ruins on a subsequent visit; see NS4660 : The remains of Hillock.

In the more distant background, NS4661 : Stanely Reservoir is prominent; the blocky shape of NS4661 : Stanely Castle can be made out at its left-hand (western) end. At its right-hand end, a couple of NS4661 : High rise flats also stand out. The Kilpatrick Hills take up most of the skyline.
