Robert Tannahill (1774-1810)

Paisley’s weaver poet born in Castle Street, son of a well-respected ‘bien’ weaver to whom Robert was apprenticed in 1786. Described by a contemporary as the ‘prettiest shuttler’ he had ever seen, Robert had a wee box on his loom-post for jotting down his ideas.


Help help Paisley, our volunteers need kit,  they need training, they need assistance, they need content, they need support and history of our town of Paisley. You can also donate or sponsor the Paisley website, all money and I promise you that it all goes straight back into creating a website which promotes our once great town “its still great I say”. We have a few people who donate their hard earned cash each year and I tell you I would love to take them and shake their hands and thank them.
