Hawkhead Woodland
These trees are on the southwestern slopes of Temple Hill. Another part of Hawkhead Woodland, not contiguous with the plantation shown here, can be found about half a kilometre to the southeast, on Tongues Hill: NS5061 : Hawkhead Woodland.
Temple Hill, Hawkhead
Temple Hill: "a conspicuous eminence in the policies of Hawkhead; name derived from a Temple which formerly was erected here, no trace of which is now to be seen" [OS Name Books, c.1856]. The building was no doubt a folly; these were often named "Temple" and were fashioned accordingly.

The "Temple" itself was marked on John Ainslie's 1796 map LinkExternal link of Renfrewshire, and on John Thomson's 1826 map LinkExternal link
