Take a wee trip to the wonderful village of Kilbarchan to discover a slice of Renfrewshire’s rich manufacturing history.
After a short drive from Paisley town centre, step into the National Trust for Scotland’s Weaver’s Cottage and be transported back to the days when Kilbarchan was at the heart of the thriving Scottish textile industry. This restored historic 18th century cottage vividly recreates the living and working conditions of a typical handloom weaver.
Before or after your visit, why not visit the loom and shawl gallery at Paisley Museum and Art Galleries to view an example of the end product and what made Paisley famous all those years ago?
