Bushyhill  Lanarkshire

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Bushyhill like this:

Bushyhill, a village in Cambuslang parish, Lanarkshire, one of the cluster of villages popularly regarded as Cambuslang town, and situated near Cambuslang station, 4½ miles SE of Glasgow. It is inhabited chiefly by weavers, labourers, and small dealers, and has a public school, which, with accommodation for 278 children, had (1879) an average attendance of 278, and a grant of £239.

The location is that of Cambuslang Station, based on Groome's description, as no more precise location can be found.
