Jenny’s Well Nature Reserve

Explore this little pocket of perfection along the White Cart Water – a peaceful haven for wildlife, just a short walk from Paisley town centre.

Formerly a quarry, the area has now been landscaped and has a network of paths. The reserve is home to dozens of species of birds, trees, flowers, orchids, otters and eels.

There are plenty of benches to sit and have a picnic. If you’re lucky, you might even see a kingfisher by the river.

You can also see the viaduct bridge which carries the Paisley Canal railway line over the river. The bridge, built in 1806, was designed by famous civil engineer Thomas Telford.
