What is Honed Caithness Slate?
Caithness Slate is a unique material only found in the far north of Scotland. This remarkable and unique natural material is one of the most versatile slates on the market. The flagstone is an attractive, durable stone which is fine grained with a dark grey colour, emphasised by the honing process – removing the natural riven, giving a smooth matt surface.
