Glasgow Cowal Shinty Club was a shinty club, founded in 1876 and now defunct, which was one of the founding members of the Camanachd Association. It was one of the most illustrious names in the sports history before folding in the 1920s. It played at various locations in Glasgow including Glasgow Green and was involved in some of the most important fixtures in shinty history.
In keeping with many teams in Glasgow, the Cowal suffix indicated the area of the Highlands from which the club attracted its players originally, the Cowal peninsula.
The club won the Glasgow Celtic Society Cup on four occasions and was captained Alex McKellar when they won the first playing of that competition in 1879. Indeed, in 2004 the club was represented by 4 of McKellar's great-great-grandchildren at the 100th final of the competition.
Cowal also appeared in the first ever Camanachd Cup Final but were defeated 2-0 in Inverness by Kingussie. The club was renowned for its "scientific" approach to the game, which initially saw it have great success against teams from the Highland heartlands of the sport.
The club became defunct around 1934. It did not enter the Camanachd Cup in this season.
