Contest #540 – Alisa Craig, Firth of Clyde, Scotland

Curling stones certified by the World Curling Federation are granite mined from one of 2 locations on the planet. About 40% of stones come from the Treyfor Granite Quarry in Wales, and this big rock off the Ayrshire coast of Scotland accounts for the rest.
