Weaver’s Cottage

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.

Today, the weavers specialise in making tartan on a 200-year-old loom.

The property has an attractive garden, where traditional dye plants including woad and madder are grown, along with a wide range of cottage garden plants.
