The WSDSWA, together with other walling associations from Scotland are a regular exhibitor at the Gardening Scotland Exhibition. Our recent features have included;  a dry stone three arch bridge, a walls of Scotland feature,  a ruined croft and a wall with bee boles.

The Moongate was built with 8 tons of stone, using a single wooden former to keep the shape during construction, again no mortar or cement was used. The structure was held in place by the careful shaping and positioning of the stone on the arch and the weight of the dry stone supports on either side of the gate.

 

The moongate was part of the display for the Bicentenary of the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society, and was awarded a Gold Medal.
