A sett is a broadly rectangular quarried stone used for paving roads. First used in Aberdeen by the Romans, setts were particularly laid on steeper streets because they provided horses’ hooves with better grip than a smooth surface. They now tend to be used as decorative stone paving in landscape architecture. Setts are often referred to as “cobbles”, although a sett is distinct from a cobblestone in that it is quarried or worked to a regular shape, whereas the latter is generally a small, naturally-rounded rock.
