Sma' Shot Cottages

[Hand looms in the cottages]

Over the years, redevelopment has threatened to wipe out the evidence for Paisley's former fame as a great weaving centre. But an unassuming row of former weavers' cottages remain, tucked away to the south of the centre. The Sma' Shot Cottages (named after an important but unseen thread used in manufacturing shawls) recreate life as a weaver over both the late 18th and mid-19th centuries. It's only open in summer for a couple of afternoons each week, run by friendly volunteers who were more than happy to give us a detailed tour.
