Comann Camanachd Leòdhais

Comann Camanachd Leòdhais are the senior shinty team from the Isle of LewisScotland. The club entered the league system for the first time in 2011. This was the first time a team from the Western Isles was allowed to compete in league shinty. However, the club was only allowed in on trial and awaited a decision from the Camanachd Association as to whether this was to become a permanent arrangement.

The club finished bottom of the league in their debut season, but completed all their fixtures and gained three points, a total which compared well with that of other teams in their debut seasons. They received the Marine Harvest (now MOWI) National Fairplay Award in October 2011. They then awaited the Camanachd Association’s decision on league membership which was given on 7 December 2011 after a lengthy consultation. The result was positive and Lewis were granted permanent membership of the league. They have since fulfilled every fixture which is testament to the club’s great character.
