Stopped off here on the way to Helensburgh as we HAD to visit. Being a huge fan of Alien I saw in the news that during some refurb work the stonemasons were given pretty much free reign with the gargoyles and someone has done a Xenomorph, so of course we had to stop and see for ourselves! What a stunning building with wonderful intricate detail and of course the gargoyles! We couldn’t go in as it was closed at the time, but the building itself has such presence that it was great just to walk around the outside and take in the structure.

Thank you for your kind review. The Abbey is just as stunning on the inside and hopefully one day you will be able to see that as well.

I’ve never seen a more beautiful structure. I only wish I could have gone inside. The architecture is complex and so gothic.

Paisley Abbey is an old and important church inside Church of Scotland. This is situated in the center of Paisley Town – Renfrewshire. The Abbey lasts from the XII century (year 1163), „the founder being Walter – High Steward of Scotland and Baron of Renfrew and was an ancestor of Royal House of Steward” (see a panel at the entrance in the church). Another panel at the entrance in the Abbey : „This Abbey was home to monks of the Order of Cluny for the 400 years of its existence”. Since the Reform the Paisley Abbey was a Catholic church. After the Reform it is a parish church. The exterior of the church is impressive. Inside we remarked the huge and interesting stained glasses, the large organ (which is one of the six existing in Scotland), the superb wooden pews, the altar, the wooden ceiling, the columns, the gallery, and the tombs of all the six stewards of Scotland. I recommend warmly a visit here.

I am here far too infrequent as this abbey has a lot to offer. The gift shop should be the first place of call when arriving. Some really good stuff there and I still got some of it on my wall. The abbey itself is very good and you can wander around on your own or get some guidance on your own. The guides will ask you what you want. You can also have a silent prayer without anyone disturbing you. The exhibitions are really good and tells the story about this important building. The abbey is spectacular from both the outside and the inside. I love this building and long to go back after the corona scare.
