Take a wee trip to the wonderful village of Kilbarchan to visit this atmospheric National Trust cottage, and discover a slice of Renfrewshire’s rich weaving history.
At this traditional Kilbarchan weaver’s cottage we’ll transport you back to a time when hand-woven textiles were the pride of Scotland’s weaving industry.
The Weaver’s Cottage vividly recreates the living and working conditions of a typical handloom weaver. Featuring low ceiling beams and period furniture, it helps give an insight into life before the Industrial Revolution.
With self-led and guided tours, children’s activities and knowledgeable staff, the Cottage is a great wee place to explore.
The Cottage also boasts a beautiful garden, where traditional dye plants including woad and madder are grown, along with a wide range of cottage garden plants.
