The Ross-shire Welfare Football Association is a recreational football league operating in the Highlands of Scotland, affiliated to the Scottish Welfare Football Association and the Scottish Football Association.

Although another association by the same name was originally formed in the late 1950s / early 1960s, the current incarnation was formed in 1982 by James Patullo.

In 2019, with club member numbers dwindling, a switch to amateur status was proposed and seconded by all clubs.
