Shinty History - Fun Fact

Shinty has featured on TV and in films many times such as in Hamish MacBeth, Monty Hall’s Great Escape on the BBC, and in Episode 4 of Outlander (Starz TV) and Brave.  It is also suggested that Quidditch, the fictional sport in the Harry Potter book and film series might have been inspired by shinty.


Sports Heritage Scotland was established in 2015 by national sporting bodies and heritage organisations representing the sports of cricket, curling, golf, football, rugby and shinty.
