Coping on a steep slope

Back in my favourite place Glen Lyon in Scotland. I came across this section of wall built more than 100 years ago at Innerwick. This shows brilliantly one solution to coping on a steep slope. The wall is built roughly in courses with the final layers below cope height done in steps. The copes are then carefully placed to create more or less a smooth gradient. Clever stuff by some Victorian waller.
Next post is a shot of landscaping on a small scale in a garden.
