I love dry stane dykes. There is a new wall about a mile from me next to a rugby club built in the style of a dry stone wall.
But due to HSE regs and the use of cement it looks like someone flung cement and river pebbles against a fence.
It looks like shit and when the frost gets inbetween the stone it's going to blow apart. Its been two years so far. Oh and did I say it looks shit. :sick:
I'm not a brickie but I've built better looking stone walls myself. I'm just not fast enough at it to make a living out if it.:cool:

It's an art drystane dyking and hard graft. It's truly amazing when you see the stane dykes running away up over the hillsides and to think that some were built well over a 100 years ago
