On entering from Shuttle Street, visitors immediately step back into the 18th century into the typical weaver’s cottage which was originally built in the 1750s.
The cottage has been matched to written descriptions in histories of the town and has only been altered slightly from original dimensions in the 19th century.
On crossing the yard, you will visit a small row of three cottages, dated 70 years ahead in the 1820s-1840s, where you can immerse yourself in history as you experience life as a weaver in this historical town during the 19th century.
Come along and join us in our tea room, where we serve beverages and homemade goods and share stories of the past.
We are open April-September, every Wednesday 12-4pm, Friday 1pm-5pm and Saturday 12pm-4pm.
Group/private tours can be arranged on request.
Sma’ Shot Cottages are owned and run by the Old Paisley Society, registered charity number SC001908. Admission is free, however, all donations towards the upkeep of the cottages are gratefully accepted.
The Weavers Cottage is wheelchair accessible, as are the ground floor, garden and the tea room.
