Carsebreck Loch

A small and shallow artificial water body in Strathallan, Perth and Kinross, Carsebreck Loch lies immediately to the north of the Allan Water and the Glasgow-Perth Railway Line. It extends to 21.1 ha (52 acres). Owing to its proximity to the railway, the site was selected in 1853 by the Royal Caledonian Curling Club to build their 'grand' curling pond and a station was opened to receive curlers travelling from around the country. Twenty-five bonspiels were held at Carsebreck Loch between 1853 and 1935, but thereafter warming of the climate meant good ice in the winter became less predictable and the pond fell from use.
