Group of Curlers outside Palace Hotel, Grantown

This photograph shows a group of curlers outside the Palace Hotel, in Grantown-on-Spey, Strathspey.



Curling is a sport in which participants slide stones over sheets of ice towards a target area. It is related to the game of boules. The sport is thought to have originated in the Lowlands of Scotland during the sixteenth century, as evidenced by depictions of curling appearing in the records of Paisley Abbey, Renfrewshire, in February 1541. It is now a Winter Olympic sport, and one in which Scottish teams have achieved great success.
