Strathglass Shinty Club – or, in Gaelic, Comunn Camanachd Straghlais – was founded in 1879, largely through the efforts of Captain Archibald Macra Chisholm of Glassburn, who served in the 42nd Royal Highlanders (Black Watch). Captain Chisholm excelled in all sports and was also well-known in music and Gaelic speaking circles. He acted as judge at the Northern Piping Meetings for 30 years, and was also one of the first members of Inverness Gaelic Society.
