Sport has always been pursued enthusiastically in the Highlands and participants often take advantage of our unique landscape, whether it be for mountaineering, mountain racing, or hunting. Shinty is still the most popular sport in the Highlands and a Camanachd Cup medal from the second ever final in 1897 is featured in the gallery. Other highlights of the gallery include the Lochaber strongman, AA Cameron’s championship belt, and the Ben Race medal won in 1902 by Lucy Cameron. She ran up Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, in a record time of 2 hours and 3 minutes.
