World Stone Skimming Championships

Scots have swept the board at the World Stone Skimming Championships which took place on the tiny island of Easdale, in the Inner Hebrides.

The venue for the sport, known as skiting, is said to have lots of beaches perfect for practising. The stones must be slate and no greater than 3in in diameter.

Competitors range in age from 18-months to 80-years-old and the current record skim is 65m. A throw is judged on distance rather than number of bounces.
