Corsehill is a fine grained pink / red sandstone which is suitable for all building applications.

Extracted near Annan in Dumfriesshire, this stone was extensively quarried in the 1800s and supplied to many prestigious projects throughout the UK, including the original pedestal to the Duke of Wellington's Monument (Admiralty Arch), Liverpool Street Station in London, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, and the famous ‘Million Dollar Staircase’, New York State Capitol Building, among many others.

Its subtle variation of pink colouring and fine grain, and its wealth of history has also made it a popular choice for specifiers in more recent times with stone supplied for a palace in Oman, Newcastle Crown Courts, Falkirk Sheriff's Court, and many other major contracts.
