World Stone Skimming Championships 2022

The World Stone Skimming Championships were started in 1983 by the late Bertie Baker, and then lay fallow until they were resurrected in 1997 by Eilean Eisdeal (The Easdale Island Community Development Group) as a fundraising event.

Contestants hail from around the world and the championships now attract over 300 participants and many spectators. Anyone of any age and any level of skill can enter the championships.

Gather the family, rock on over in your camper and you'll be able to stay at a local campsite! As well as entering the games, you can also make the most of your trip and soak up the sights of Scotland!

Date: 25 September 2022
Location: Easdale Island, near Oban in Argyll, Scotland
Tickets: £5 for adults, £2 for children
