You don’t need to book a holiday or head off to the coast to enjoy the beach. There’s a perfect spot to take the family for a sunny day out in Renfrewshire!
Located on the banks of the River Clyde, beneath the Erskine Bridge, is a hidden gem called Boden Boo and Erskine Beach. Here, you’ll find a glorious sandy beach and grassy slopes to relax and unwind.
Offering stunning views down the water, this playful spot is ideal for kids, adults and dogs with fantastic woodlands and picnic areas.
Boden Boo is great for enjoying some sun, sand and paddling, but it’s important to be careful around the water and be aware of strong currents and tides. Families should make sure that children aren’t left unattended when playing in the water.
In addition to the beach, you’ll find two miles of trails for easy walking and cycling. There’s also accessible paths for buggies.
To get to Boden Boo, take the turn-off on the A726, just off the south end of the Erskine Bridge. The nearest post code is PA8 6AX if using a SatNav. Parking at the site car park is free.
You’ll also find lot of places to eat, drink and shop, and public toilets, at nearby Erskine and Bishopton.
Plus, Boden Boo is part of the Clyde Walkway – a 55-km trail from Glasgow’s west end to the New Lanark World Heritage site. The trail allows visitors to discover more of the River Clyde, natural attractions and communities along the route.
