The Sma' Shot Cottages

Explore Paisley's heritage and visit the home of the Paisley Pattern

Who We Are

Sma Shot Cottages are owned and run by the Old Paisley Society, a registered charity.

We preserve and maintain a key part of Paisley's cultural heritage and welcome visitors from all over the world to explore the weaver's cottages and the history of the paisley pattern.

Join us for a unique experience in Scotland; a tour of a typical weaver's cottage which was originally built in the 1750s.


 You can meet tourists and locals alike in our tea room where we serve beverages and homemade goods and share stories of the past.

Our work preserving Paisley's history and heritage is only possible thanks to our team of volunteers.
