The community of Kinlochshiel, and indeed the wider Shinty areas, were saddened by the news that John MacDougall passed away peacefully on Wednesday 29th December. John was in his 90th year and for almost thirty of these years John looked after the financial affairs of Kinlochshiel Shinty Club.

Ever present, until recent months, John attended home games and although he could not travel to finals he was delighted when the team he had put so much into won both the Camanachd Cup and MacTavish Cup in 2021.

John played a major role in the changes at the Club as Financial Director especially when dealing with the construction of the new pitch. His contribution to the Club was recognised when he was made Chieftain in 2016.

Condolences to Anne, sons Sandy and Donald and daughter Eleanor.

Funeral arrangements will be advised at a later date.
