Throughout Scotland, there exists a plethora of ancient and historic buildings, including castles and stately homes, whose roofs date back to the very origins of the structures themselves.

These old slate roofs were crafted in a bygone era when roofing techniques vastly differed from modern methods. Everything from the size of the slates to the nails used for fastening, as well as the intricate lead detailing around chimneys and ornate spiral sections, and even decorative slate patterns, reflects the craftsmanship of yesteryears.
