Col-Glen Shinty Club is a shinty club based in Clachan of Glendaruel, Cowal, Argyll, Scotland.


The Club was founded in 1920 and had early success in competition. The club's name reflects the two villages from which it draws its players and support, Colintraive and Glendaruel. A sign of the changed demographics of the Scottish Highlands is that Col-Glen could raise three full teams and have nine spare reserves in 1938 but now has only one side as well as a couple of youth teams. [1]

Due to the sparse population, the club has folded on twice, between 1966 and 1968 and for a longer period between 1993 and 2005. The club restarted in September 2002 with a primary team and within three years it was able to reform an adults team to compete in the Bullough Cup (which it had won in 1983) and then re-entered League Shinty with the assistance of ex-players who had been part of Kyles Athletic's 1994 Camanachd Cup winning team.[1]

On 12 September 2015, Col-Glen won the South Division Two title, the first league title in the club's history.[citation needed]
