Ice-skating Boots
Brora Heritage Centre

These red leather ice-skating boots would have been worn by people skating on natural ice formed on lochs and curling ponds.

It is thought that ice skating first appeared in Britain in the seventeenth century. In recent years, ice skating outdoors on frozen ponds and lakes has become much less common as a result of climate change and recognition of the dangers. However, this beautiful pair dates from a later period, probably late Victorian or Edwardian.
