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.

Return track from Langbank to Erskine House

Old Bishopton track from Langbank to Erskine House near Longhaugh Lodge

A causeway runs north from the Longhaugh Lodge - Old Bishopton track
and curves through the river dyke to pass as a recognisable mound to the beach.
Beyond this it proceeds as a wide gravelly mound beneath a cobbled way to the Longhaugh Light
This aligns with a recognisable road mound on the northern bank of the river.

 Bishopton Parish Church

There has been a church on the site since the twelfth century
 when one was constructed by the Abbey of Paisley,
