Scottish Curling Trust help

Curling is a Winter Olympic sport that has origins in Scotland in the 1500's and has been a valuable part of the cultural identity of the country and its people.

Since 1838 the Royal Caledonian Curling Club has been responsible for governing the sport of Curling in Scotland and has, over time, amassed a considerable collection of art and artefacts related to the sport. The collection is the largest in the world and for over 50 years, it has been an ambition of the RCCC to display the collection in a museum. In 2013, the written records and photographs of items in the collection were collated into this globally accessible collection of curling related items.

This collection is not yet publicly accessible but through this site you can view many items that have been donated to the Royal Caledonian Curling Club or the Scottish Curling Trust. The Collection includes: granite curling stones, handles, curling brushes, trophies, medals, books, films, paintings and photographs.

This collection now includes the private collection of the late David Smith, a former Trustee of SCT, a curling collector and enthusiast. A scoping exercise will be conducted to plan for the digitisation of the new items and this task will take some considerable time.
