dry stone work from design to construction

On the Kings Causeway


Here on the Kings Causeway, an old dry stone boundary dyke, overcome by time and the destructive effects of ivy root, was rebuilt using the original stone.

Whether it was there when King James V passed by on his pilgrimage to Tain in 1527 is not recorded but it was certainly old and beyond repair, requiring complete dismantling, ground clearance and rebuilding.

The relatively recent dressed sandstone framed pedestrian access and steps were dismantled and rebuilt matching the original “stone for stone” but mortared for additional strength.

Our clients were sorry to have missed the King’s passing but very happy with their new dyke.
