The Camanachd Association has been awarded National Lottery funding of up to pound;15,000 to develop a Scotland national under-18 shinty squad and it may not be long before schoolgirls break into the youth set-up.

Already there are 10 established women's shinty teams in Scotland but now more girls are starting to take to he game, thanks largely to the work of Team Sport Scotland.
