The Camanachd Association and are delighted to present the draw for the 2023 MacTavish Cup 2nd Round.

The draw was conducted by Freya & Fraser from Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Loch Abar. The full school were kitted out with t-shirts, bags, caps and water bottles emblazoned with the MacTavish Cup logo as a reward for their help in completing the draw.

In an exciting and competitive draw, the first two names out of the hat were Lovat and Kingussie in what is set to be a great match. The drama continued as the second tie would see Skye drawn away to Beauly. Elsewhere, Glenurquhart will make the trip to Inverness while the final tie out of the hat saw Lochaber paired at home against Newtonmore.
