Take a wee trip to the wonderful village of Kilbarchan to discover a slice of Renfrewshire’s rich manufacturing 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.
Weaver’s Cottage vividly recreates the living and working conditions of a typical handloom weaver. With low ceiling beams and period furniture, it helps give an insight into life before the Industrial Revolution.
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.
