About Us

Curl Edinburgh is a 7-sheet curling facility in the heart of Scotland’s capital city. During the summers of 2018 & 2019 our facility underwent major renovations, creating one of the most modern curling rinks in the country. You can find us next door to Murrayfield Ice (skating) Rink, in the shadow of Murrayfield Stadium.

Curling is a social and inclusive sport, suitable for everyone aged 8 and over, so whether you’re looking for a fun new hobby, serious competition, or anything in between, we’re sure that you’ll find something suitable. As the only curling rink in Edinburgh and the Lothians we are home to more than 80 curling clubs, who play regular fixtures here throughout the season. We also host beginner sessions, group experiences, and a range of tournaments. If you want to get into curling or host your own event, contact us today.

Curl Edinburgh is a trading name of Murrayfield Curling Limited (MCL). MCL is one of two companies with a controlling stake in the facility. They own the land where the ice pad is built, employ ice/office staff, and are responsible for managing and selling the ice. Edinburgh Curling Club (ECC) is the other company, with a responsibility to promote the sport, operate the off-ice facilities, and manage memberships.

History of curling in Edinburgh

Curling is known to have existed since at least the 16th Century. Edinburgh’s oldest club originally played on the frozen Duddingston Loch, and was formally constituted in 1795. Historic maps show outdoor curling ponds dotted all over Edinburgh and the Lothians, but the invention of indoor ice rinks in the 20th century saw their demise. Murrayfield Curling Rink has been our home since 1980, but before that there were three other indoor rinks.
