A woodland and riverside beach beneath Erskine Bridge
Right on the edge of the River Clyde, beneath the impressive Erskine Bridge, Boden Boo looks across to the craggy ridge of the Kilpatrick Braes. Stroll amongst the trees or bring a picnic, sit back and enjoy the views from the grassy slopes or riverside beach. This popular woodland is perfect for children.
There’s a network of about 2 miles of informal trails, all ideal for easy walking and cycling. The paths are wide and smooth – great for buggies too – but be prepared for a few short moderate slopes.
Please take care when using the beach during periods of wet weather as the area is prone to quicksand. Also during winter and bird nesting season please keep dogs away from this area to prevent disturbing wildlife.
Clyde Coastal Path
If you would like to explore a bit farther afield, Boden Boo is also on the Clyde Coastal Path – a 55km trail from Kelly Burn between Wemyss Bay and Skelmorlie to Milngavie.
Facilities & access
You’ll find plenty of places to eat, drink and shop, and public toilets, at nearby Erskine.
