The most famous trophy in shinty, the Camanachd Cup, has been spending this week on Bute.

The cup was put on display on Tuesday at the Rothesay shop of tournament sponsors Scottish Hydro Electric, where Senga Rae from Scottish Hydro and Jimmy Duncan from Bute Shinty Club are pictured with the silverware, while we understand there are plans to take the trophy to local school pupils towards the end of the week.

The cup was brought here by Bute referee Ted McDonald, who was elected to the Camanachd Association’s board of directors this week, after the second round draw for this season’s competition was made at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow on Monday.

That draw saw Bute rewarded for their 6-1 first round win at home to Skye last Saturday (report on the Sport section of this site) with a home tie against Glasgow Mid Argyll, to be played on Saturday, June 4.
