Make Paisley and Renfrewshire your home

Renfrewshire is a great place to live – and a great place to map out your future.

Just a few miles from Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, we are home to:

  • Paisley, Scotland’s largest town with its magnificent Abbey and the much-loved and internationally-renowned Paisley Pattern
  • Scotland’s Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District—an international centre for R&D and home of the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland and the UK’s first Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre
  • Glasgow International Airport connecting Scotland with key destinations around the world
  • Beautiful countryside including Clyde Muirshiel, Scotland’s largest regional park.

With historic towns and attractive villages; modern sports and leisure facilities; and some of Scotland’s premier retail and leisure destinations, ours is an area much sought after by those seeking both urban and rural lifestyles.

Our excellent air, rail and road connections make us a popular home base for high achievers and their families who also value our open countryside, a network of cycleways and the opportunity to become part of some of Scotland’s most environmentally-aware communities.

Our schools are recognised nationally for their excellent performance and innovative approaches to learning, with Gryffe High School in Renfrewshire recognised as State School of the Year 2020 by The Sunday Times.

Renfrewshire is an area that has always nurtured and celebrated people who make a difference. World-leading artists, entrepreneurs and influential commentators born here have gone on to make their mark on the world. Alongside these famous individuals are our local heroes—the people who, day-in-day-out, make a difference in communities across Renfrewshire.
