About the area
The council area of Renfrewshire is one of three areas that make up the historic county of the same name, the other two being East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
The county town is Renfrew, however it is Paisley which is the main settlement and its abbey, cathedral and museum draw many visitors to the town. Whether you spend a morning buying local produce at the farmers’ market or take the whole family to the Coats Observatory, Paisley and its history and architecture make a varied and fascinating visit.
Outside of the towns, spend some time enjoying Renfrewshire’s natural beauty at Finlaystone Country Estate, Gleniffer Braes Country Park or RSPB Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve. Those with a particular interest in church history should take in some of Renfrewshire’s highlights on the Renfrewshire Ecclesiastical Trail, which follows the area’s stories and colourful past.
