Paisley Abbey

Reviewed By macedonboy - Glasgow, United Kingdom

This outstanding example of a gothic building is Paisley Abbey, formerly a Cluniac Monastery and now a Scottish Church. This grand old building dates from the 12th century by the first High Steward of Scotland, Walter FitzAlan.
There's some amazing stained glass windows throughout the church as befits such a grand building. Best of all, the abbey is the burial place of Scottish Queens and King Robert III. Absolutely worth a day trip from Glasgow to Paisley just to see this church.
There's an audio guide available. It's cheap by any standard and worth getting getting for the history and stories. The church also has a little cafe and tea/coffee and cakes are very reasonably priced.

Delta Force Paintball West Glasgow

Delta Force Paintball West Glasgow is located just a few miles from Junction 29 of the M8, making it easily accessible to paintball players from Glasgow, Paisley, Greenock and surrounding areas. It's very close to Glasgow Airport, so much so you can see our pyramid game zone from the windows of aircraft flying in and out. Our centre has 7 action-packed game scenarios, including 2 double-decker buses, Viet Cong Village and Afghan Command posts.

Great day out for a group of kids. Different maps, themes to play. Was just like being in a video game according to my son. Marshals could do with listening to the kids and helping rather than sending them to the dead zone if there's a problem. Great facility.

Weaver's Cottage

Reviewed By CityVisitor186534 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Unless you were a member of the NTS and found it in the booklet or were browsing carefully through their website, (which has been much improved recently,) you would not give this attraction a second glance as you drove past it.
It is much enhanced by the helpful staff. The cottage was lived in, and weaving still took place until the 1950s. Most of the artifacts have been added later, but are of the correct vintage, and there are three looms in the cellar. We were give a demonstration of two of the looms in action, and my wife got to try one of the more modern ones.
The story of weaving in the village was told by the descendant of one of the weaving families from the village, who had been retaught locally to use the looms and had produced cloth herself for the Bannockburn celebrations on the old loom.
The garden is attractive and also worth a walk round. Take the opportunity to visit if you can. Don't miss the video presentation of the weaver's family, which is well acted and pop some money in the ghoulish replica skull set up as a collection box. It is a model of an old skull found during excavation of the site.

Great way to spend an afternoon.
Went primarily for two things.
1. Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition, this was very good.
2. Crucifixion of Christ. This was on lone. Disappointing :-(
Nice café with great table service.
Good fun free day out. The CRM exhibition was £7 entry but that is a small price to pay for a great museum/gallery that is all free.
Highly recommend.

Another excellent museum to complete the overall maritime experience started at Irvine. Our guide, Anne, was extremely knowledgeable and explained the history and workings of the Company in an interesting and intriguing manner. Wonderful to recall the great days of shipbuilding and innovation that was the Clyde.

The church is currently open to the public on Fridays from 2-4PM and is well worth a visit -absolutely stunning . We were so fortunate to get chatting to a gentleman connected with the church who ended up giving as a personal conducted tour - wonderful -gained so much information -could have listened to him all day !
The stained glass windows are beautiful and the detail in the carved wood is exquisite -truly a work of art everywhere you look .
Volunteers from the church community are available to answer any questions you may have ...or if you get lucky as we did will show you round .
There is no charge for entry ...Highly recommend a visit .

My girlfriend and I went ice climbing for my birthday. It was our first time ice climbing but we had a great time and seemed to pick it up pretty quickly. The specialist equipment was all provided (crampons, axes, helmets, harnesses etc). All you need is suitable (preferably waterproof) outdoor clothing.
Our instructor, Kate, was really friendly and helpful and made an effort to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend it for a great day out.
