Paisley ( PAYZ-lee; Scots: Paisley, Scottish Gaelic: Pàislig [ˈpʰaːʃlɪkʲ]) is a large town situated in the west central Lowlands of Scotland. Located north of the Gleniffer Braes, the town borders the city of Glasgow to the east, and straddles the banks of the White Cart Water, a tributary of the River Clyde.
It serves as the administrative centre for the Renfrewshire council area, and is the largest town in the historic county of the same name. Paisley is often cited as "Scotland's largest town" and is the fifth largest settlement in the country, although it does not have city status.

It's Sma' Shot day in Paisley which pays tribute to its weaving past, Paisley arguably was the leading weaving town in Scotland. The weaving industry led to a process for making thread which led to the thread mills but even without the mills industrialisation throughout the UK would probably have led to decline of weaving. There are many reminders of Paisleys thread making past indeed you could describe the centre of Paisley as a living museum to the Coats, the Clarks and the company they built. However there's very little to its weaving past Sma' Shot Cottage being the leading example. A small cottage with a loom and living spaces faithfully preserved in this 18th century cottage, well worth a visit.
