Mini guide to Renfrew

     

Located six miles west of Glasgow on the west coast of Scotland, the small town of Renfrew is situated in the district of Renfrewshire. Known as the birthplace of the Royal Stewarts, Renfrew has held royal burgh status for over 500 years and currently boasts Prince Charles as its Baron.

The Renfrewshire region borders with North Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire, giving it some truly magnificent surrounding scenery. Renfrew town itself is small and relatively quiet and while not making any claims to being a tourist town, it possesses enough charm and natural beauty to attract holidaymakers looking for a relaxing break away from the masses.

Nearby Paisley Abbey is popular with visitors; this ancient building is both a historic site and a fully functional parish church. Originally a 6th century Celtic church stood on the site, but later monks from Shropshire built a priory which was raised to abbey status in 1245. The Abbey is open to general visitors provided church services are not in progress.

Leisure and entertainment are sedate and typical of a small town, with eating options predominantly British, although there are a number of Indian establishments. An evening's entertainment might consist of a pleasant drink in one of the town's charming pubs, where the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Shopping can be found at the Braehead Shopping Centre, which has a good selection of contemporary shopping outlets.

As Scotland's biggest city, Paisley is a good place to head for a day out from Renfrew. With an abbey, a museum and art gallery, an observatory and the Gleniffer Braes Country Park, there is no shortage of things to do.

Renfrew is served by the M8 motorway, while there are good rail links with nearby Glasgow and the national network. Glasgow International Airport is the nearest air connection.
