Who we are

We are a mixed gender team that plays in the Scottish Student Shinty League. We cater for both beginner and veteran shinty players. Many of our current players have picked up a shinty stick for the first time at the club and have gone on to play in the professional leagues for teams like Uddingston. As well as our many beginner players, we have club players from teams such as; Inverness Shinty Club, Ardnamurchan Camanachd, Inveraray Shinty Club, and Uddingston Shinty Club.

We also offer many club-wide socials throughout the year to get know each other both on and off the pitch.
