History of the Sanquhar Curling Society

This lively history of the society was written by James Brown, the Secretary, to mark its centenary.  Brown, who achieved fame in both curling and bowling was also the author of "The History of Sanquhar", published in 1891.   On the 21st January 1774 sixty local curlers met to play on the Black Loch on Sanquhar Moor, and later that day in the Queensberry Arms resolved to form a curling society.  Bonspiels with other parishes became important local events and Sanquhar would play against Kirkconnel, Morton, Penpont and New Cumnock.
