Inverness has been chosen to host the biggest game in shinty in 2023.
Bught Park has been selected to be the venue of the Camanachd Cup final in two years time.
The announcement comes as the Camanachd Association revealed the venue for the next three finals.
The 2021 final has been relocated from Kingussie to Oban after the governing body considered Scottish Government regulations.
It said whilst the Camanachd Cup final could have taken place in Kingussie this year, as was originally planned, it was the size and scale of a planned music festival, with close to 1000 tickets already sold – mostly all-day tickets, set up to complement the shinty spectacle that was simply not feasible under current government event guidance.
As a result, it was agreed to defer the event at Kingussie until 2022 where both events are hoped to take place.
