Attraction in Kilbarchan
This typical 18th century handloom weaver's cottage houses the last of the 800 looms working in this village in the 1830s. Most Fridays and weekends, the clack, clack of a weaver at work brings this cottage to life again. Locally woven shawls cover the box beds. There is an important display of looms, weaving equipment, domestic utensils, local historical and weaving items. Portraits of former spinners and weavers look at home in the midst of their tools of trade. Attractive cottage garden. Video programme.
