Scotland's ancient sport has come to Stirling! Join Us Today!

We are a mixed ability team that plays in the Scottish Student Shinty League. We cater for both beginner and veteran shinty players.

As well as our many beginner players, we have leagued players from teams such as; Inverness Shinty Club, Ardnamurchan Camanachd, Inveraray Shinty Club, and Uddingston Shinty Club.
