‘The Travel Bug enjoys a good jaunt around his home nation of Scotland and he decided to take a closer look at Ailsa Craig…’
The best curling stones in the world are made from Ailsa Craig granite. All 64 stones used in the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 were produced with the Scottish stone.

Speed Bonnie Boat
Ailsa Craig lies halfway between Glasgow and Belfast, off the West coast of Scotland. The massive rock is only accessible by boat…unless you can fly, obviously…
The UKs 3rd largest gannetry is on Ailsa Craig and it’s a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. It houses more than 73,000 breeding sea birds.
