It was the world’s first ever haggis curling tournament, sponsored by Lanark butchers Damn Delicious. The South Lanarkshire Wheelchair Curling Club, and guests the Upper Ward Ladies Curling Club engaged in battle. It was a tournament of skill (and lots of chance) as they aimed across the rink at an eight pound haggis.
