Paisley Abbey, Cradle of the Royal House of Stewart.

Paisley Abbey, located on the site of an old celtic church founded by St. Mirren in the 6th century, and a site of pilgrimage making Paisley a place of significance.  In 1163, Walter FitzAlan, the first High Steward of Scotland issued a charter for a priory to be set up in Paisley and then the status of abbey in 1219.  In 1307, Edward 1 of England had the abbey burned down but it was rebuilt later in the 14th century.  William Wallace born nearby was educated in the abbey.  In 1316 Marjorie Bruce, daughter of Robert 1 (Robert the Bruce) of Scotland and wife of Walter Steward, the sixth High Steward of Scotland, gave birth to King Robert II in the Abbey, the first of the Stewart Monarchs. She died as a result and is buried at the Abbey. Paisley Abbey is also the burial place of all six High Stewards of Scotland and the wives of Robert II and King Robert III. The 10th century Celtic Barochan Cross rests in the abbey and there is a significant organ as well as spectacular stained glass windows.  The adjoining place of Paisley is the remaining part of the extensive monastry where you can find a tea room. A Church of Scotland parish kirk since the reformation and still so today where you can join the congregation on a Sunday
