On Easdale Island, the smallest permanently inhabited island of the Inner Hebrides, a disused slate mining quarry provides the perfect arena for the World Stone Skimming Championships where it began in 1983. Now held annually, anyone of any age and any level of skill can enter. Each competitor is allowed three skims using specially selected Easdale slate skimming stones. For a skim to qualify the stone must bounce at least three times and it is then judged on the distance achieved before it sinks.
