McMillan Masonry undertake heraldic carving to any design requested by our clients with most common request being for Armory. Armory is the most recognisable branch of heraldry, which relates to the design and transmission of the heraldic achievement, more commonly known as the coat of arms.

As stone masons, the design, setting out and relief carving of a heraldic shield or plaque is a real privilege and there is a genuine heightened enthusiasm in the workshop upon any commission. The beauty and pageantry of their intricate designs lends itself fantastically well to deep incised carving or embossed relief.

Heraldry as been poetically referred to as the “shorthand of history” as it is has been used throughout the centuries to symbolise the proud heritage, achievements and aspirations of individuals and private organisations alike. Should you wish to discuss the process of carving your proud heritage into stone then please get in touch with one of our team.
