Templand, Dumfries and Galloway

Templand is a village in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, a few kilometers northwest of Lockerbie. Its name suggests it was at one point owned by the Templars. Templand was also owned by Clan Jardine and lies close to their clan seat, Spedlin's Tower, and what remains of Jardine Hall. Templand's biggest expansion came with the Industrial Revolution. When the nearby sandstone quarry was built it became home to many quarry workers.
