Disturbingly I know exactly where the devils plantation is, I have driven past and cycled past it many times. The authoress, May Miles Thomas, a BAFTA  award winning one, says you will either get it or you wont. Mine is a work in progress, but I wanted to share the site and await your feedback, (if you get it, or not) http://www.devilsplantation.co.uk/ this is my link to the devils plantation it is from Shereen Nanjiani's Sunday news program on radio Scotland http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radioscotland/2010/12/shereen-may-miles-thomas.shtml

    Why should you be disturbed about knowing where the Devil’s Plantation is ? For exactly the same reasons as you, I also know where it is but I am also familiar with the whereabouts of lots of other locations which feature in the website. The website seems a creative way of showing very good black and whites of Glasgow and surrounds but what Harry Bell saw in the lines connecting them I don’t know so on that basis I guess I don’t “get it”

      Disturbed? because of the name given to a copse that I considered as nameless. Like you I don’t get it, unless she is conferring on man’s urbanisation work as a new devils plantation.

    There are not many landscape features that don’t have a name. The OS map has it as “Mound” not very romantic but descriptive. I have seen it referred to as Mearns Mound and Castle Hill, probably from the nearby Eaglesham House. It seems to be regarded as a motte as was the hill in the middle of the village that we knew as Moat Hill. So, given that the small copsed hill can be called almost anything you like, it seems unlikely that there is any connection, sinister or otherwise between the hill and the website or the concept of lines across the landscape. Incidentally, I don’t think there is anything to “get”. I think the website is just an artful gallery.

    Except the film maker was on the radio being interviewed and stated “you will either get it, or you wont”
    Need feedback from someone arty, a Pagan or both.
