The Boys of the Eilan Shinty in Newtonmore 1820 - 1945
Rosemary M Gibson

with Rob Ritchie

Rosemary Gibson's book The Boys of the Eilan marks the 125th anniversary of Newtonmore Camanachd Club. The author weaves together press reports, club records, personal reminisences and local shinty literature to illustrate the growth of Newtonmore Camanachd Club from its early struggles to national champions. The Club's history is set within the wider context of the development of camanachd from a folk pastime into an organised sport. The author presents the evolution of the shinty club within the social context of the transformation of Newtonmore from an obscure village into one of the most popular holiday resorts in the Highlands.
