“A taste of Paisley that may change your perception”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Paisley may be suffering during the economic down-turn - but looking past this to a grander time - the Abbey is certainly worth a wander around - with its beginnings in the middle ages - it boasts the last resting place of the daughter of Robert the Bruce and King Robert the 3rd - and some special architecture into the bargain

“Very Special place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The Abbey is so accessible compared with other places, there is a super car park just down the road and this is a no pressure, highly recommended visit. The Abbey oozes with Stewart History and the daughter of Robert the Bruce Marjorie is bured here. Super information boards and of course the famous `Wallace ` window not to be missed. And dont forget to look outside around the building as well, some terrfic statues. I believe this is all run by volunteers and they are so helpful and knowledgeable and very proud to be part of this Historical gem.

“Open doors day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I spent 2 hours in the Abbey on Open Doors Saturday. It was well staffed with knowledable kindly people. I learned a lot and was pleasantly surprised by the extensive history of both Paisley and the Abbey
