Fence on Temple Hill
Fence on Temple Hill
The fence is on the lower southwestern slopes of the hill, and its course is marked on the 1:25000 map, which also reveals that the line of the fence corresponds to the near (i.e., the eastern) side of the course of a dismantled railway line.

A roundabout that is marked on the map can be seen in the background, through the gap: NS5061 : Roundabout on Hurlet Road (A726), Paisley. The fence itself is the lower edge of a plantation that is behind the photographer, and which is part of 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
