Scottish Whinstone paving and kerbs


Whinstone is a provincial name used in the quarrying industry to describe any hard dark-coloured rock
.  The material supplied by BBS is quarried throughout central Scotland and is a classified as a quartz dolerite.  It can be supplied in a range of colours from dark grey through to a dark green and may occasionally contain a reddish variation.This material has been used extensively throughout Scotland over hundreds of years for kerbs, setts and walling and is today used on exclusive projects where stone heritage is a key factor, such as Rosslyn Chapel and St. Andrews Cathedral, Glasgow.
