Fresh from staking a claim among golf’s elite at the weekend, Oban golfer Robert MacIntyre was a special guest of honour at the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup second round draw on Monday.

Having clinched a tied second-place finish at the British Masters European Tour event on Sunday, beating world number 16 Tommy Fleetwood by six places, Robert made the draw from the Jacobite Steam Train at Fort William Station the next day.

Another guest of honour at the draw was 77-year-old shinty stalwart Duncan Henderson, who has not missed a Camanachd Cup final since 1959 – even managing to catch two replays, taking his final tally to 62.

‘It just comes down to an interest in the game,’ said Mr Henderson, a former shinty referee who played for Strachur, Inveraray and Taynuilt during a 40-year career. ‘I’m honoured to be invited here for the draw.’
