History of the Club

Borestone and Stirling Curling Club takes pride in its history. The club incorporate two of the most recognisable symbols from Stirling into the club emblem.  

The ‘Borestone’ the stone on which King Robert the Bruce placed his standard at the Battle of Bannockburn. 

The ‘Wolf’, who according to legend, barked at Norse invaders and wakened the sentinels, which saved the town. 

Both these emblems reflect the pride the club has in its roots and heritage following their merger in 1953.

Here we look at some of the history of the club through newspaper references, RCCC archives and the present Minute Book, which goes back to 1951. Earlier Minute Books have not yet been traced despite enquiries.
