Shinty is Scotlands indigenous sport and Newtonmore is one of the most famous clubs in shinty. In 2015, which was our 125th anniversary as a club, we won the Premier Division Championship for the sixth year in a row and retained the Macaulay Cup. Our 2nd team won the Sutherland Cup and retained the Strathdearn Cup whilst the under 17s won the London Shield.
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.
