Drum of Garvock, Dunning

Architects Yeoman McAllister created a stunning design for this mansion house near Dunning in Perthshire.  Forster completed the slating works which covered an area of over 1,000m², across 23 roof panels including a spectacular turret.  Cupa Heavy 3 Spanish Slate was selected due to its rough surface and close resemblance to the traditional highland slate Ballachulish.  16 valleys and 5 mitred hips were expertly cut to create a striking roof scape.  Due to the extended rafter lengths (extending to 9.7metres in locations) and steep pitching, special consideration had to be given to ensure safe working practices during the works.
