The National Division is the second division of the Camanachd Association Men’s Shinty Leagues, and was reinstated in 2016 after a gap of 9 years (it was previously known as Division 1 from 2000 to 2007). Champions, and thus promoted to the Shinty Premiership from 2016 to 2019 were Kilmallie in 2016, Skye in 2017, Kilmallie again in 2018 and Fort William in 2019. The 2020 season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic.

Shinty is Gaelic Scotland’s traditional version of Hurling. It is one of the forgotten Gaelic, Celtic or Atlantic Games like Basque Pelota and Welsh Baseball, played mostly in Gaelic parts of Scotland like the Highlands and Islands. The game is very similar to Hurling, with a curved stick used to hit a ball through a goal, except there is no point-over-the-bar and less play in the air. The game is 12-a-side as opposed to Hurling’s 15-a-side. The Shinty National League Division 1 was the Second Level of Men’s Shinty from 2004 to 2007.
