Dooslan Stane

The Dooslan Stane or Stone is a landmark connected with the textile industry. The stone was a meeting place of the Weavers Union in the South of Paisley and was used as a “soapbox”. It was originally inscribed with its history (now largely faded). It was moved from its original site in the corner of Neilston Road and Rowan Street to its present location in Brodie Park.

Also present, arranged around the Dooslan Stane, are the four original Paisley Tolbooth stones. The Dooslan Stane is still used today as the congregating point for the annual Sma’ Shot parade which takes place on the first Saturday in July.
