CABERFEIDH SHINTY CLUB

Caberfeidh Shinty Club was formed in 1986 at a meeting held within the Spa Pavilion, Strathpeffer.   The meeting had been called to discuss the formation of a combined team to represent Strathpeffer and the crafting township of Knockfarrel which lies on the higher ground to the south of Strathpeffer and which separates the valleys of the Peffery and the Conon.   The chief initiator at the meeting was William F. Gunn, the son of the Cromartie Estate factor at the time, and it was at his suggestion that the new Club was called Caberfeidh.   Two separate Clubs, Strathpeffer and Knockfarrel, had existed prior to the meeting in the Spa Pavilion.  

Since its formation in 1986 the Club has played its matches on grounds owned by Cromartie Estate and has recently been granted a lease by the Estate to enable grant funding to be obtained in order to construct a new sports pavilion at Castle Leod, Strathpeffer in conjunction with the Strathpeffer Highland Gathering Association.

The Club has experienced considerable success over the years at all levels and is at the forefront in the encouragement of shinty in schools and at youth level running weekly coaching sessions in local primary schools and also youth coaching sessions at the Club training nights.

The Club is one of the most senior Sports Clubs within the Strathpeffer area and has always maintained strong links with the Community.   Several of the original Club members were also members of the Strathpeffer Highland Gathering Association when it was formed in 1882, and there are still direct descendants of these original members active in both organisations today.
