Much of the Town Centre of Paisley and the adjacent Oakshaw area form an important part of Scotland’s Architectural and Historical Heritage. Very few old Scottish Burghs have such a fine wealth of buildings or a skyline like Oakshaw.
Oakshaw occupies a unique setting on a hill overlooking the Town Centre. Its spires and towers dominate the Paisley skyline. It still retains a medieval street layout with closely confined and distant views encompassing a wide range of architectural quality.
The Paisley Walking Tours on Wheels are walk tours which will familiarise the visitor, tourist or local with some of the interesting and enlightening architectural and historical points of central Paisley. It is a walk which brings out the atmosphere of the town, past and present, and one which can be completed at a leisurely pace within two hours.
