Club Camanachd Oilthigh Obar Dheathain

Aberdeen University Camanachd proudly holds the title of oldest constituted shinty club in the land, dating back to its origins of being founded by Highland exiles in November 1861.


Four-time Sutherland Cup winners

Over the years, our club has gone through many phases; from the highs of cup wins in the 70’s, 90’s and 00’s, to the lows of relegations and wash-out seasons. But regardless of the outcome, we have always come together and done everything in our power to keep shinty alive and well in the north-east. Being a one-team club can bring challenges, but we continue to field for games in a part of the country perhaps not famed for the swing of the caman. We pride ourselves on welcoming shinty players from all over the country to pull on the blue and white, be it moving to Aberdeen for work or study, or simply being new to the game full stop.
