Friday 24 Feb 2006: Curling
Nearly all granite for the stones used in the Olympic sport of curling originates from the Scottish island of Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde. Although the quarry on the island has been officially closed, the world's leading curling stone manufacturer, Kays of Scotland, have "gathered" 1500 tons of the special granite a few years ago to be able to meet the demand for future Winter Olympics.
