Welcome to the Trail

Barrhead’s history has been showcased by East Renfrewshire Council and Barrhead, Neilston and Uplawmoor Area Committee in the form of a heritage trail. At every location of the Barrhead heritage trail’s 25 sites, which include centuries old churches, 18th century inns, the railway station and Arthurlie FC’s football ground, circular commemorative blue plaques, giving a brief description of each location, have been erected.

The oldest site on the trail is the Arthurlie Cross, a 9th century carved stone and a plaque has also been erected at the former home of Glasgow tearoom entrepreneur Miss Kate Cranston, who lived in a villa at 39 Carlibar Road after she married the third provost of Barrhead, John Cochrane, in 1892.
