Inveraray Shinty Club are a shinty club from InverarayArgyll. The club was formed after a public meeting in 1877. The club reached the Camanachd Cup final in the first season in which they competed in the tournament in 1898 but were beaten 2–0 by Beauly. The final was reached again in 1903 but Inveraray refused to travel to Inverness to face Kingussie after the first match at Perth was drawn, and the cup was awarded to Kingussie.

The Camanachd Cup was finally won in 1925 however and Inveraray made a successful defence of the tournament the following year. In 1930 the Camanachd Cup was won for a third time. After the Second World War the number of players in the district was greatly reduced and the club joined with rivals Furnace Shinty Club to become Loch Fyne-side. The combined side twice reached the Camanachd Cup Final but were beaten on both occasions. In 1957, Inveraray was reformed but fell into abeyance in 1979. It was then restarted in 1982 and has continued to this day.
