  • Galloway Stone Craft have worked a large number of landscaping projects over the last four years at our home. These have included building dry stone walls, masonry walls, haw-haw walls, water features and raised beds. Their work has been of exceptional quality both aesthetically and in the excellence of the build. Rory and his team are extremely professional, exact and a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
  • Over the last few years we have been building a new house in Kirkcudbright and Rory has been heavily involved throughout. We are very pleased indeed with the work he has carried out. He constructed boundary walls and a retaining wall, put stone cladding on two of the house walls and formed a walled garden. In every case he not only interpreted our own and our architect’s ideas but also was very willing to put forward his own suggestions as to how the design could be improved. We have no hesitation in recommending Rory for stonework and garden design.
