Seedhill Craigs


(The Hammills)

A natural weir which cuts across the White Cart Water in the centre of Paisley (Renfrewshire), Seedhill Craigs (known locally as the Hammills) give rise to a fine waterfall, one of the most spectacular in an urban setting in Scotland. This prominent ledge is composed of resistant volcanic rock and its existence brought the establishment of mills which made use of the water impounded. It can therefore be argued that this geological formation gave rise to the industry which made Paisley.
