Erskine House was built in 1828 and was formerly the residence of the Lords Blantyre.
 It is constructed in Tudor syle on a wooded eminence overlooking the River Clyde.
 From 1916 until after World War II it was the Princess Louise Hospital for Sailors and Soldiers.
 It was  known
subsequently as Erskine Hospital.
 It houses disabled ex-servicemen and women and is the largest ex-service hospital in the United Kingdom.
 The structure is an A-grade listed building.
 The grounds hold an 18-hole golf course and also an extension of the Clyde River Walkway.
