Telecoms mast on Temple Hill
When this image was being submitted, large-scale mapping showed the mast too far to the SSW, shifting it something like 50 metres, and placing it, implausibly, no more than 20 metres from the spot from which this picture was taken. I therefore determined the actual location of the mast as best I could by comparing satellite imagery with online mapping, relying on other surrounding features as fixed points.
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
