Scottish Pebbles 50-80mm
Our ever-popular Scottish Pebbles 50-80mm are a common feature in many households, and we understand why. These natural garden stones contain a selection of brown and tan stones enabling them to camouflage with the nature around them. Furthermore, when these stones are dampened, the colours turn more vivid and glossy, giving them a new life. Consisting of peach, brown and brick red stones, these stones all meddled together are ideal for more period and classic properties.
As the name suggests, our Scottish Pebbles have been brought back from the Scottish Highlands, which gives the sea-worn, naturally rounded look and shape. The positives for these stones don't just end there. These stones are derived from top-quality granite - which is highly sought after, and guarantees that these Scottish Pebbles are of the best possible quality.

Scottish Pebbles 50-80mm for Your Garden
The 50-80mm Scottish Pebbles are ideal to create garden features. Creating a feature area within your garden that is easy to maintain and not hard to design is entirely possible with the Scottish Pebbles. Due to their browns and tans, they will look very appealing amongst the greenery of a garden and also contrast well with colour flowers if you have them.
As these pebbles are quite large and have a smooth rounded shape to them, they are not at all suitable to be used for pathways and driveways. As a result of this, we suggest you create feature areas in your front garden or even use them as borders rather than creating paths. The colours will be a lovely addition to your home and create an aesthetically pleasing look.
