Erskine

Erskine is a town in the council area of Renfrewshire, and historic county of the same name, in the west central Lowlands of Scotland. It is really a part of Inchinnan.

It lies on the southern bank of the River Clyde, providing the lowest crossing to the north bank of the river at Erskine Bridge connecting the town to Old Kilpatrick in West Dunbartonshire. Erskine is a commuter town at the western extent of the Greater Glasgow conurbation, bordering Bishopton to the north and Renfrew, Inchinnan, Glasgow International Airport and Paisley to the south.

Originally a small village settlement, the town has expanded since the 1970s as a new town, boosting the population to over 15,000.
