This morning, I collected guests from their Glasgow hotel and then proceeded to nearby Paisley to research family history.

First stop was Hawkhead Cemetery where we finally located the grave stone of Annie Brown McLaren who died March 15th 1922. This was a great source of satisfaction to all concerned as this particular marker had proved elusive.

Next we embarked on a walking tour of Paisley taking in:

  • 13th century Abbey
  • Main High Street and shopping area.
  • Baptist Cathedral
  • Museum
  • Observatory
  • Witherspoon Statue
  • Laigh Kirk
  • Anchor Mill
  • Threadmill Museum

  • Sutherland Street
  • Garthland Lane/Place
  • Cochran Street

After concluding our Paisley visit and with time to spare we drove to nearby Glasgow where we visited the Cathedral and Necropolis.

Overall, a productive day aided by reasonably sunny weather.
