Setts are the correct term for what we generally call cobbles. Cobbles are rounded and were popular before the Setts took over as stone cutting technology advanced during the 19th century.

Re: Walls to you

Made this way to let the wind through? Up on top of the Gargunnock hills, near the new windmills.[/quote] That type of dyke is known as a single boulder dyke.
