Catcastle Grey sandstone was used for the restoration of Stirling Castle, notably the reconstruction of the Great Hall, including the full parapet.

Historic Scotland undertook a major restoration project to return several areas of the Castle to how they might have looked in the mid-16th Century.

The army had used the Great Hall as a soldiers' barracks from the 1800s until the 1960s, and up until recently, visitors only saw empty rooms with bare stone walls, with the upper floor being inaccessible.
