Monastic Landscape of Paisley Abbey Walk – Sat 11 Dec 1-3pm

This Monastic Landscape of Paisley Abbey Walk will explore areas of Paisley that were once owned by the Abbey – from the Monastic site of the Abbey to its orchard, deer park and more. We will look at what survives of the monastic complex, what has been lost and what may survive beneath our feet. We will meet at the West Front of the Abbey at 1pm.

This is our last walk of 2021 and we hope to finish with a visit to a local coffee shop to relax, have a warm drink to look forward to Christmas and the New Year.

We now have radio receivers for use during the walk to allow distancing, and to allow the guide to be heard. If you wish to make use of the receivers, you are welcome to bring your own headphones, or you can use our own which will be sanitised between uses.

Bookings have now closed

New for autum & winter heritage walking tours

We now have specialised walking tour headsets available for our Heritage Walks starting from our Old Paisley Walk on the 16th October 2021. The receiver takes a standard set of earphones using a 3.5mm jack. We can provide a set of earphones or you are welcome to bring your own. Our earphones will be sanitised before and after use, along with the receiver.

Using the headsets allows more social distancing and allows you to hear the guide a lot clearer (and also help save the guides voice!) If you want to make use of the headset please let us know in advance or at the start of any of the walks you are booked on.
