Brora Heritage Centre
A large crowd gathered to witness the spectacle which involved teams of twenty men per side. After two windy matches, Golspie won one match, and Clyne the other.
This ram’s horn snuff box, with silver fittings and plates, decorated with Cairngorm crystals, was presented by the men of Clyne to Major Clunes of Crakaig, for his ‘countenance and encouragement’. Quite what he actually did is unrecorded, but the horn certainly provides an unusual memento of the day.
