Erskine is a town on the south bank of the River Clyde and is close to the Erskine Bridge.
Erskine began life as a small village settlement and has since expanded into a bustling new town. The Erskine Bridge connects Renfrewshire with West Dunbartonshire and stands more than 150 feet from the River Clyde. The nearby Erskine veterans charity houses a popular garden centre and restaurant, while other nearby attractions include the luxury 5-star Mar Hall Golf Resort and Spa, Lamont City Farm and a popular soft-play facility, Pandamonium.
Boden Boo is a woodland area which lies beneath the Erskine Bridge and contains about two miles of trails and the Erskine Beach. Erskine is also home to the Newshot Island Nature Reserve, a salt marsh that juts out into the River Clyde and acts as a feeding and resting point for a wide array of migratory birds.
Erskine has two golf clubs, The Erskine Golf Club, which hosted the Scottish Professional Championship in 1991 and The Scottish Youths Championship in 2007, and Mar Hall hotel, golf and spa resort. Mar Hall is a luxury five star hotel which overlooks the River Clyde and enjoys views towards the Kilpatrick Hills.
Erskine is easily accessed by road via the Erskine Bridge as well as the M8 motorway. Local bus services connect the town to surrounding destinations including Paisley, Renfrew and Bishopton, where the nearest train station is.
