Curling in Scotland 2023: Here are all 22 Scottish ice rinks where you can play the sport this winter
Scotland has no shortage of places to give curling a try.
People have played curling in Scotland since at last the early 16th century - the world's oldest curling stone dating back to 1511 was found at the bottom of a pond in Dunblane.
Sometimes described as 'bowls on ice', the sport sees teams of four players slide stones down a sheet of ice to a target area called the house.
The roaring game (so called because to the noise the stones make when sliding down the ice) has seen Scotland produce several world and Olympic champions over the years - who could forget Rhona Martin's golf at the 2002 Olympics or Eve Muirhead repeating the feat 20 years later in 2022?
Scotland is lucky enough to have a total of 22 ice rinks where you can curl - meaning there's likely to be one close to you wherever you live.
Most of them also offer curling taster sessions, letting you have a go at the sport while getting tips from an experienced curler.
