The remains of Hillock
The remains of Hillock
This shallow rectangular depression is located on top of an area known locally as NS4660 : The Rocks; as shown there, the Rocks provide a good natural platform on which to build, since they are in the form of flat-topped knoll raised above what might have been a very damp surroundings (the site is at the foot of a slope: NS4660 : Slopes below the Tannahill Walkway). See also NS4660 : The Rocks.

It is not surprising that the traces of Hillock are now faint; when the first-edition OS map was surveyed in 1858, the farmstead was already a ruin. For the main description of the site, including evidence from some early maps (both OS and pre-OS), and for a view across the ruins from the other side, see NS4660 : The remains of Hillock.
