Polmaise Trophy

  • Presented by Colonel Murray of Polmaise in 1896, it was to be played for between Stirling, Stirling Castle, Borestone and Sauchie and Bannockburn Curling Clubs in annual competition, the final being played at Bearside, where Colomel Murray had permitted curling to take place.

  • Over the years, the clubs have changed, first Stirling Castle ceased as a curling club, the Borestone and Stirling amalgamated to leave a single game between the two clubs annually.

  • No longer dependent on Bearside, it is an ice rink competition now.
