Perth and Kinross

A location close to the Allan Water in southwest Perth and Kinross, Carsebreck and its adjacent curling pond lie 2 miles (3 km) west of Blackford. The Royal Caledonian Curling Club built their 'grand pond' here (now known as Carsebreck Loch) and persuaded the Scottish Central Railway to open a station in 1853, which was grandly named the Royal Curling Club Station. Thousands of curlers from across Scotland disembarked to take part in winter matches, taking advantage of discounted fares. The pond largely fell from use after 1935, as good ice was no longer predictable. The station became known as Carsebreck Halt, eventually closing in the early 1950s.
