Rover's Shinty Club, Kinlochewe

A team photograph of Rover's Shinty Club, from Kinlochewe. Kinlochewe is a village in the parish of Gairloch, in the northwest Highlands. It is in close proximity to some of Scotland's most magnificent mountains, including the Torridon hills.

Shinty, or 'camanachd' as it is known in Gaelic, is a Scottish team sport, played with a stick and a ball. Derived from the same roots as hurling in Ireland, it shares superficial similarities with hockey, although the stick can be lifted above the waist, and it is possible to hit the ball with both sides of the stick and also tackle with it.
