On one of my annual climbing trips to the highlands I spotted these two examples:-
The wall above is in the forest at Aviemore. Typically it has a slightly overhanging cope.
This one is a relatively new wall at the western end of Aviemore. The stone is mostly Granite with copes and throughs of another blacker rock which I think is schist and is quite slabby, so it'd make better throughs than the granite.
Warning over dairy fat rations - DAIRY farmers have been urged to keep a close eye on the energy intakes and sources of their cows this winter.
