Paisley is a great base from which to explore  not only Paisley and Renfrewshire but also the rest of Scotland.

With the centre of Paisley only minutes away from Glasgow International Airport and with numerous hotels in and around Paisley it makes perfect sense to have Paisley as the ideal base for trips further afield to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and the Highlands to take in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and savour the history of the country.

The guide below is just a small selection of what Scotland has to offer.
