Shinty's Big Day Out

The 2019 Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup Final

Newtonmore v Oban Camanachd

With the countdown to the 2019 Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup Final underway, excitement is building! Dubbed ‘Shinty’s Big Day Out’, the final of the Scottish national sport’s premier cup competition - which will see Newtonmore face Oban Camanachd - is set to be the biggest staging of the event in its 123-year history with live traditional music, entertainment and a dedicated Kids Zone adding to the festival feel.

First contested in 1896, the final of shinty’s national knock-out cup competition promises to be a brilliant day out for all the family and also an opportunity to watch two of the country’s elite shinty teams - 33-time winners, Newtonmore, and three-time winners, Oban Camanachd - go head to head in the most eagerly awaited fixture on the shinty calendar.

The Camanachd Cup Final attracts thousands of spectators on the day and is also broadcast live by BBC Scotland across television, radio and online platforms. This year’s final - held at An Aird, Fort William on Saturday 14th September - promises to be a day to remember.

Gates open at 10am and spectators can enjoy live music and entertainment from leading pipe bands, Highland dancers and Feis musicians. Younger spectators can head straight to the Kids Zone for a range of free activities including face painting; magician shows; and to perfect their circus skills. There will also be an interactive puppet show while ARTventurers will lead arts, crafts and sensory play activities. Traditional entertainment comes in the form of kids Gaelic songs & stories presented by Feis.

At 11am the rising stars of shinty will contest the MacMaster Cup U14 final before the throw-up for the main event at 2.15pm.

The Camanachd Cup is also a highlight of the Scottish social calendar and spectators can enjoy some of the finest Highland hospitality in the various bars and food outlets situated throughout the An Aird venue.

As if you needed any more reason to attend Shinty’s Big Day Out 2019, kids under 12 go free (when accompanied by a paying adult). There are also Early Bird discounts for those buying tickets with us before August 31.

No refunds are provided for online tickets
