Shinty is Scotlands indigenous sport and Newtonmore is one of the most famous clubs in shinty. In 2016 our 1st team won the Premier Division Championship for the seventh year in a row and also won the Camanachd Cup, the Mactavish Cup and the Sir Tommy Macpherson Memorial trophy. Our 2nd team won North Division 1 and retained the Sutherland Cup for the first time since 1928. 1959 was the last time that the club won the Camanachd Cup and the Sutherland Cup in the same year.
The purpose of this website is to keep locals in the Dalwinnie, Laggan and Newtonmore areas up to date with what is going on in the club. To allow exiles to stay informed about who is who, what is going on and how we are doing. To give visitors, who may never have heard of shinty, the opportunity to find out something about it and to watch it being played.
We welcome visitors at our matches, encourage you to ask to speak to one of the committee and look forward to explaining the game to you to increase your enjoyment.
Shinty in villages like Newtonmore is an integral part of the local culture. For visitors and locals alike ....... be part of it.
