GOOD LUCK TEAM GB

We would all like to wish the Women's Team GB Curling team good luck for their semi-final match tomorrow at the Winter Olympics.

Curling has an important place in our museum, this remarkable area of the our collection covers three centuries of curling history. The curling stones make up possibly the most significant collection in any museum anywhere in the world. The brooms in the photo have a silver engraving mounted on them as they were originally given as prizes, the inscription reads "Lachie's Broom, Kingussie V's Newtonmore Jan 1940" and although we don't know the outcome of the match, if the local Shinty games are anything to go by then it would have been hotly contested!

The Pirate stone is an engraved curling stone, which we think would have been personalised to give kudos to its owner as well as make it easier to make sure you got your stone back at the end of the match.
