Welcome to the
Scottish Curling Trust
The Scottish Curling Trust was set up to encourage and actively promote public participation in curling; to preserve, conserve, interpret and display the arts, heritage and culture of the sport of curling; and to make provision for disabled people and those who are impaired or have special needs to introduce them to and assist them in their enjoyment of curling. The Scottish Curling Trust works alongside The Royal Caledonian Curling Club, Scottish Disability Sport, The Scottish Wheelchair Curling Association and The World Curling Federation to achieve these objectives.

Make a difference
Leave a gift to the Scottish Curling Trust to help future generations to access and enjoy the sport of curling. Leaving a gift to the Scottish Curling Trust will make a huge difference to the work that we do. Over the last few years the Scottish Curling Trust have partially funded a development officer at the Royal Caledonian Curling Club with a disability remit. The aim of this position is to help increase the number of people with disabilities participating in curling, improve access to physical activity and promote social interaction and inclusion. Marked progress has been made in increasing the number of disability clubs and numbers, opportunities for social and competitive events and developing pathways and structures for disabled people to participate and succeed in the sport.
The Scottish Curling Trust is also committed to preserving and conserving the heritage and culture of the sport of curling. Recently the trust was responsible for the successful fundraising campaign to restore Charles Lees' painting 'The Grand Match at Linlithgow Loch' (1849) which has been described as one of the most important sports paintings of the period and for curlers, perhaps the most iconic image in the world. On the 15th January 2014, the 96" x 60" oil canvas was transfered to the National Galleries in Edinburgh where the painting underwent restoration. The painting is now on display at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh as part of the ‘Playing for Scotland: The Making of Modern Sport” exhibition.
