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 sanstone for?
Do you have any suggestions for another MATERIAL OF THE MONTH for Material Considerations: a Library of Sustainable Building Materials?
Or even another material? Please let us know!
