A Triangular Hammer-dressed StoneAbout this object
Mentioned in the Annual of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club 1939-40:
"A triangular hammer-dressed Stone, weight 110lbs, presented to the RCCC by Mr A Henderson Bishop in 1938. It was one of the Meigle Grannies and its neighbour was sent to the Montreal Curling Club by Mr Bishop."
This stone is known as a 'Whirlie' described in Rev. John Kerr's History of Curling (1890) as a: "oblong, triangular shape, and altogether a curling stone of nature's own making, being untouched with the workman's hammer, except the hole in which the handle was inserted."
