Welcome to “Highland Week of International Curling”

This is an International Invitation Curling Bonspiel held annually in Inverness, Capital City of the Highlands of Scotland, during the first week of March.

We celebrated the 51st annual Highland Week of International Curling Bonspiel in March 2017 the original bonspiel being 1967. 

The Inverness Ice Centre is the "Highland Week of Curling’s" home and we hope to welcome new curlers year on year to this event to join those ranks that have supported us for so many years and created the social atmosphere for which this Bonspiel is so famous throughout the curling world.

Inverness City is an excellent venue for curlers, whether you are here just for the week or perhaps with us for the week and then have a second week touring the Highlands of Scotland.

The overall winners will receive and retain for one year "The Glenfarclas Silver Quaich" handcrafted especially for this event.

The Bonspiel is in the usual format open to All Men's Rinks, All Ladies Rinks and /or Mixed Rinks.

Each team playing a minimum of 7 games during the week, and in addition to the overall winner, there are prizes for the runner up and 3 x third prizes in both the high road and the supplementary road.

There are prizes for the highest Ladies team and Mixed team (two men and two ladies playing in any order).

The Bonspiel is open to Men's Rinks, Ladies Rinks, Mixed Rinks and Heinz Rinks of all playing abilities.
