Glenurquhart have won promotion back to the Premiership after holding Kilmallie to a 0-0 draw in the final game in the National Division.
In a nervous clash in Drumnadrochit, Glenurquhart managed to get the point required to finish in second place and will now play in the top flight for the first time since 2018.
Player Stuart Mackintosh says it was a hard fought draw at Blairbeg Park but says Glenurquhart have earned their promotion.
Speaking on Camanachd Association social media, he said: "It means a lot as the boys have been training hard this year. It has been the hardest most consistent training sessions and it has shown in our fitness especially."
Manager Davie Stewart said it was nervy 90 minutes but they are glad to get the job done.
"It was hard going with two evenly matched teams, but we got the point we need and i'm delighted."
Meanwhile Strathglass missed the chance to move off the bottom of the table after Oban Celtic scored a late equaliser in a 3-3 draw.
Seth Jones gave the visitors from Cannich a 1-0 lead at half time, but Gabriel Tidser equalised for Celtic at the start of the second half.
Penri Jones put Strathglass back in front midway through the second half, but Ali MacKerracher equalised for Celtic before Steven Hyslop put Strathglass in front again in the 68th minute.
But Celtic snatched a point with two minutes left of regular time through Innes Jackson to remain one point clear of Strathglass with one game remaining.
Strathglass have a better goal difference than Celtic as they go into their final match at Kilmallie next week.
Celtic are at home to champions Lochaber and can guarantee their place in the National Division with a win.
If Celtic lose, Strathglass can stay up with a draw, or require a win if Celtic draw with Lochaber.
