Glen Urquhart Its places, people, neighbours and its shinty. As part in the centenary celebrations of the Glen Urquhart Shinty Club Peter R English was asked to prepare a history of the club. This challenge Peter was glad to accept because the subject interested him greatly. On giving the assignment more thought it became difficult to delineate the boundaries. How far back in history should one go? Shinty in the Glen is not 100 years old but rather 10 times 100 years or more. After a great deal of consideration Peter found it difficult to separate the game of Shinty in Glen Urquhart in the last 100 years from these other associations and so this history is somewhat wider than originally conceived.

English was well regarded for his contributions to the sport of shinty. As a young man he played in a successful Glenurquhart Shinty Club side in the 1950s and early 1960s before moving to Aberdeen, where he was a founder of Aberdeen Camanachd, the Aberdeen University Shinty Club.

His big contribution to the game of shinty was the establishment of the Shinty Yearbook in 1971 and publication continues to this day. He was also a vice-president of the Camanachd Association, the governing body of shinty, for 10 years.
