At this traditional Kilbarchan weaver’s cottage we’ll transport you back to a time when hand-woven textiles were the pride of Scotland’s weaving industry.
Weaver’s Cottage vividly re-creates the living and working conditions of a typical handloom weaver. With low ceiling beams and period furniture, it helps give an insight into life before the Industrial Revolution.
