About Glasgow

Find out all about Glasgow

.
  • Paisley is the largest town in the historic county of Renfrewshire in the west central Lowlands of Scotland. The town is situated on the northern edge of the Gleniffer Braes, straddling the banks of the White Cart Water, a tributary of the River Clyde.
  • The town, a former burgh, forms part of the contiguous Greater Glasgow urban area; Glasgow city centre is 6.9 miles (11.1 km) to the east.
  • The town came to prominence with the establishment of Paisley Abbey in the 12th century, an important religious hub in medieval Scotland which formerly had control over the other churches in the local area. It is regularly cited as ‘Scotland’s largest town’ as it has yet to attain official city status.
