Welcome to the website of Newtonmore Camanachd Club. Shinty is Scotlands indigenous sport and Newtonmore is one of the most famous clubs in shinty. In 2014 Newtonmore won the Premier Division Championship for the 5th year in a row. We also won the Macaulay Cup for the first time since 1986. Our 2nd team won the Strathdearn Cup and the under 17's team won the Mactavish Junior Cup.
2015 is the 125th Anniversay of the club's foundation in 1890. We will be purchasing commemorative merchandise and arranging special events to celebrate this landmark.
