Shinty in Scotland - Expedia Ireland Travel Blog

We’ve been on a journey so far in 2015 to experience some of the most unique and traditional sporting experiences on offer around Europe.  In September we sent Dublin based travel blogger Nora Menouni from The Art of Exploring to the 2015 Camanachd Cup Final in Oban, Scotland.  Some of you may be aware of Shinty due to it’s similarities with hurling.  For Nora this was a first time experiencing the sport and it’s fair to say, the Camanachd Cup Final left a lasting impression.  Sign us up for next years big game!

Oban is located in the Scottish Highlands, a popular area of Scotland to visit throughout the year.  The venue at Moss Field Stadium is also home to the popular Highland Games, another sporting event that gives you a real feel of the sense of community for this part of Scotland.
