125 years of Skye shinty was celebrated under sparkling lights on Saturday 25 November.

The Shinty Ball was held in the Portree Community Centre, starting with a drinks reception.  

Skye Camanachd Social Club chairman, Douglas MacDougall, opened the evening and welcomed the many in attendance.

Grace was said before the three course meal.  

A centre piece in the middle of the floor commemorated the history, as well as looking to the future of the game.  

The Player Of The Year trophies glittered on the table, as they waited to be presented later in the evening.  

An especially commissioned necklace, made by Love From Skye, celebrated the history of Skye shinty.  

The celebrations continued until early on Sunday morning.
