Paisley is the largest town in Scotland. The town  has a rich history; from it’s 12th century Cluniac Abbey, it’s world famous Paisley Pattern Shawls, and its position at the forefront of the Thread Industry all of which brought great wealth and prosperity to the Town, enabling it to build it’s inspiring Town Hall, Museum and Art Gallery, Observatory, Schools and numerous fine Churches.

Paisley is surrounded by many historical towns and villages and is also ideally situated as a gateway to the Highlands and Islands, with Loch Lomond only 20 minutes away and Edinburgh a mere 45 minutes, and with the airport within 2 miles of the centre of Paisley, it really is the ideal base for visitors from near and far.
