In the Pricelist (right) you can also see the Blocks which were in red color, on the left you can see the octagonal formed ones like these here:I have wanted one of these for sometime. I have a couple Tam O Shanter stones and love them. So I find it hard to justify paying the price for another one attached to a WOA since they go for a pretty good price. Haven't found one by itself for sale that can be verified for a reasonable price. There are also some old TOS labeled as WOA since they used to label them all that at one time, but those are easy to tell the difference on. Here are the two main variants I have seen that are the two they talk about in the H&G Part 3.
The first one has the classic look. The second is more of a black slate looking and more like a black escher as I have read it.

Far right came with a Water of Ayr label.What are you calling those four on the left? Dalmore? Have any labeled Water of Ayr by chance?
You should read this tooRead all the links and mentioned publication which was the brain-fodder I was looking for. Interesting history of these stones, quarries, and brands.
Enjoyed that PdF, thanks!You should read this too
Yes - but health warning - as others have said - labelling of these were inconsistent. I would stongly advise taking each stone as an individual.Thanks for that ⅞. I have been looking for the right things visually it seems and you labeled WoA helps what I had in mind. Sorry I couldn’t read that label in the pic (my eyes!) but the stone looked like it.

I might have to print that fist logo out. I have not seen that one before anywhere
