[Weaver's Cottage]

Like many settlements in the Scottish Lowlands, Kilbarchan grew up thanks to a thriving textile industry. The Weaver's Cottage in the village centre lets you step back in time and discover what life was like for a handloom weaver 200 years ago, in a traditional building housing Kilbarchan's last working handloom. The entry price may seem a little high for such a small property, but we were given a fascinating demonstration of tartan weaving on our visit, and there's also a garden to explore, containing plants once used for dyes. Kilbarchan is only about 10 minutes' drive from Glasgow Airport, so a visit could be perfect for filling in a gap at the very end of your holiday if you're departing Scotland from here.
