The club was founded in 1888, and has a long history in the sport and indeed in the area. In 1953 and in 2015 the club won the sports most prestigious competition, the Camanachd Cup. Balgate Park, Kiltarlity has long been home to the Lovat team.
Traditionally competing in the north area leagues over the years, Lovat have since progressed into the top flight premier league. The reserve mens team compete in North Division 1, and is a great arena for the youth players to blossom. Youth shinty has always been an important aspect to the club and we currently have U14’s and U17’s.
Also the new ladies section has added a new dimension to the club with further opportunities for shinty in the village.
The club draws a weekly lottery for fundraising and holds various fundraising events throughout the year.
Sponsorship is very important to the running of the club. The first team are sponsored by David Michie Plumbing and Heating, whilst the reserve team are sponsored by CDMM, and the Ladies are currently supported by Scotplas Roofing Supplies.
Further to team sponsorship, advertising boards are located around the pitch which have been taken up by a variety of local businesses.
