About Walking Tours on Wheels

Walking Tours on Wheels is a voluntary organisation, established in 1994 as Historical Paisley, by Les Fernie and offers affordable, totally accessible guided tours of Scotland’s largest town, Paisley.

Celebrating 25 Years Tourism in Paisley Scotland

Les has suffered a number of health issues in recent years which have left him using a mobility scooter and Walking Tours on Wheels is his innovative way of allowing those with mobility issues, as well as able-bodied, to get out and about and sightseeing in Paisley. 2008 was when it changed to Walking Tours on Wheels. 

We visit  and explore many of Paisley’s historical places of interest – of which there are over 50 – all of which are accessible. 

Walking Tours on Wheels can also offer bespoke tours for businesses, corporate events, office socials, family and friends outings and community groups and tourists.

Additionally, Walking Tours on Wheels can come to you if you are unable to join us in person – we offer presentations and reminiscence to elderly forum groups, residential care homes and lunch clubs.

Please contact us if you are interested in arranging any sort of special event – we have lots of expertise and knowledge to deliver you a unique experience.

A total of 85 people – many of them children aged between nine and 14 who were working in local mills – died in the Paisley Canal disaster of November 10, 1810.
The tragedy took place just one week after a horse-drawn barge service was launched between Paisley and Johnstone.
The Countess of Eglinton was thronged with holidaying mill workers who had been given a day off for the Martinmass Fair.
