Apartment building on the seafront
Apartment building on the seafront
This building, just south of the Glenburn Hotel, is unusual (although not unique on Bute - I'll add references to more examples when I track them down!) in that the window-uprights (painted black, here) are made of cast iron. The use of metal instead of stone means that the pillars can be much more slender, allowing more light into the living-space - cast-iron was the metal of choice as, despite having a low tensile strength, it is very strong under compression, and is therefore ideally suited to building-support.
