Description

In Paisley, on the appropriately named Shuttle Street, there are a few cottages left from a whole complex of weavers cottages. The first one dated from circa 1750, the second one from the 1800's. Run by a cheerful staff of volunteers, a tour through these two cottages is like stepping back in time. It's fascinating to learn that the living conditions of the earlier weavers was very good. They had enough money to educate their children and buy themselves pews in the local church, whereas in the next century times were much harder. Personal items and old looms are on display. There is also a wonderful tea-room in one of the cottages, also run by volunteers. - Mairi McCloud
