Just out on YouTube is this fascinating video made by Ruth Aisling all about the island of Ailsa Craig, off the ayreshire coast, where the granite to make the stones for our sport is quarried.

Ruth also goes into detail on the manufacture of the stones and why we use this particular granite.

Cupar Province Bonspiel 2023-24 season

The Cupar Province Bonspiel was held at Perth Curling Rink on the evening of Thursday 7th December 2023.

10 Province clubs took part and, generally, it was a close run thing on most of the sheets with Ceres and Abdie actually tying on 9 points each. The winner would be decided on points scored and betwen the eventual 2nd placed club and the 9th placed club there was only a difference of 5 points!

The runaway winners, however, were Leuchars who bucked the 'close fought' trend and secured 18 points over their opponents, Cupar.

The scorecards were completed as follows:

Leuchars 18 Cupar 1
Stratheden 11 Pitlessie 9
Forret 11 Falkland 8
Ceres 9 Abdie 9
Rothes 7 Abdie 6
Well done all!
