The draw which took place in Fort William this afternoon will see the two clubs who have met in the last two finals meet at The Eilan next month.

Newtonmore won both finals, 3-0 in Oban last year and 3-2 at Bught Park in Inverness in 2017.

Drumnadrochit outfit Glenurquhart head to Oban Camanachd in the next round while fellow National Division club Beauly will look to pull off a giant killing against Premiership league leaders Kingussie.

The second round tie has been favourable for the Ross-shire clubs with Kinlochshiel travelling to the winners of the replay between Glasgow Mid Argyll and Bute. Caberfeidh will also fancy their chances of progression as they head to National League leaders Fort William.

Camanachd Cup Second round draw – Fort William v Caberfeidh; Glasgow Mid-Argyll/Bute v Kinlochshiel; Lochaber v Kilmallie; Kingussie v Beauly; Kyles Athletic v Inveraray; Newtonmore v Lovat; Oban Camanachd v Glenurquhart; Skye v Oban Celtic.

Ties to be played Saturday, June 1.
