Curling on natural ponds seems to have been very popular in the Mount Blair area. The archive knows of 2 ponds – at Glenshee Lodge and at Kindrogan, though there were probably many more. Non of these ponds are now used for curling – possibly a sign of milder winters.

  • I was brought up on Borland Farm in the 50’s and remember skating on Kirkmichael curling pond, which was just behind the farm. There were great curling matches and teams came from all over to play. The stones were stored in a small stone built shed at the side of the pond. We used to have ice hockey matches and it was with great trepidation when we first set foot on the ice at the beginning of the season.

  • The Kirkmichael curling pond and its adjacent stone built club hut still exists behind Croftmuir Farm on the B950.
