CUPA PIZARRAS‘ high-quality Heavy 3 slate has been chosen for the refurbishment of a stable yard at £7million development, Dalkeith Country Park.

The Country Park is just five miles from Edinburgh, therefore, building products specified needed to reflect the rick historic surroundings. Needing a sensitive and effective restoration of its stables and courtyard, the estate’s team hired

A Chartered Architect was hired to help restore the stables and courtyard, integrating historical features within the new development. The project saw the stables and courtyard reimagined to create a new retail area, restaurant and wellbeing space, where the horse stalls and their feeding racks can still be viewed among the new features of the building. 

CUPA PIZARRAS supplied the Heavy 3 slate, a slate closely resembling the traditional Ballachulish natural slate that is no longer produced. The medium-grained and blue-black colouring of the slate with occasional quartz gives it an authentic and visually appealing finish.

In addition, the Heavy 3 slate has exceptional thickness and durability, not to mention it is impermeable, non-combustible, UV resistant and unaffected by chemicals and pollutants. Plus, it is suitable for all environmental conditions and very low-maintenance.

Allan Liddell, Area Sales Manager for Scotland, said: “Our Heavy 3 Slate is significantly thicker than its competitors, meaning it can provide maximum endurance against the high wind speeds and driving rain that is so common throughout Scotland. This made it perfectly positioned to fulfill both aesthetic and practical requirements of the development at Dalkeith Country Park.”
