Mill ‘O’ Mains is a major social housing development of 300 new homes and is part of Dundee City Council’s ongoing regeneration plans to replace outdated properties. The challenge was to find a tile that replicates the look of the natural clay and slate tile variants in the area.


The Russell Roof Tiles Galloway tile was chosen for the development because of its high quality and natural appearance. The roof tiles are part of Russell’s Natural Range – an expanding selection of thinner leading edge tiles that have the appearance of natural clay and slate.


The successful completion of a development which was in keeping with the characteristics of the local area.
