The world stone skimming championships

Get the date in your diaries! Sunday 29th September is the World Stone Skimming Championships, held on Easdale Island, the smallest permanently inhabited of the Inner Hebrides. The island was once the centre of a thriving slate mining industry, and the competition is held in one of the disused quarries.

A stone must bounce at least three times in order to qualify, and it is then judged on the distance achieved before it sinks.
