Even before the Erskine Bridge was built, the chain ferry meant that this was an important crossing point.

Now it is an ideal place to enjoy a walk along the banks of  the Clyde. Going from Renfrew to Erskine along the A8, over the Inchinnan bascule bridge, you pass one of the finest Art Deco buildings in Scotland.The India of Inchinnan Building dates from 1930 when it was designed by Thomas Wallis  for India Tyres. Wallis' firm also designed the famous Hoover factory in west London.

The area also offers opportunities to enjoy walks along the riverside.
