Material of the Month: June 2015 – Pitairlie Sandstone

Why it’s inspired us…

This 100% natural sandstone from Monikie near Dundee has a density and hardness which makes it ideal for drystone dyking.

It can also be used as a cladding material, roofing tile and as stone floor- Angus flagstones which were world renowned in the 19th Century.

Why we’d like it to inspire you…

Pitairlie sandstone was used in our Broughty Ferry House Case Study- which displays the variations in the colour of the stone. Do you think the sandstone compliments the rest of the building? Does it fit well for a seaside location?

What would you use Pitairlie sandstone for?


Do you have any suggestions for another MATERIAL OF THE MONTH?
Or even another material? Please let us know!
Thanks!
