Robert Pollok was a poet best known for The Course of Time published shortly before his death in Southampton in 1827. Pollok, a farmer's son, was born at North Moorhouse in the Parish of Eaglesham on 19th October 1798. Pollok wrote poems which centred around local people during the covenanters struggles of the 17th century and anonymously published three poems, Helen of the Glen, The Persecuted Family, and Ralph Gemmell. Suffering from tuberculosis he died at Shirley near Southampton on 15th September 1827 and is buried in Millbrook churchyard, two miles from Southampton. This memorial to Robert Pollok was inaugurated on 24th September 1900 near Muirshield at the junction of the Old Mearns Road and Ayr Road near to Eastwood Golf Club.
