Fence on Temple Hill
Fence on Temple Hill
The line of this fence is marked on the 1:25000 map. The background details include NS4755 : Neilston Pad (see NS4959 : The Fereneze Hills on its name), behind the pylon on the left.

There is a mast behind the photographer's position, but not so close as (at the time of writing) the map places it: NS5061 : Telecoms mast on Temple Hill.
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
