Chim-chim cheroo!

Perthshire sandstone. It's crumbly, even the slenderest ivy shoot can chew through it's powdery surface, it can't cope with freeze-thaw without splitting and it is dreadfully porous - gratefully drinking in any hint of moisture, creating plentiful work for local damp-proofing companies. Ah - but it's yellowish hues do look rather warm and welcoming in the low autumnal light.
