If you are willing to keep results going here that would be great. (Two threads if it gives more publicity to the amateurs)

I'm calling a Groats v Stabs final at Harmsworth Park now (on or around 20th August)! Although Staxigoe will be a decent test for Groats and Pentland Utd have a tough draw. Good to see several island teams still in the mix and a guaranteed Western Isles club into the Quarter Finals.

Third Round (Saturday 25th June)

Avoch v Kirkwall Hotspurs
Black Rock Rovers v Golspie Stafford
Iochdar Saints v High Ormlie Hotspur
IRN Security v Sleat & Strath
Ness v Carloway
Pentland Utd v Lairg Rovers
Stromness Athletic v Wick Thistle
Wick Groats v Staxigoe Utd

Quarter Final (Saturday 16th July)

Black Rock Rovers or Golspie Stafford v Iochdar Saints or High Ormlie Hotspur
IRN Security or Sleat & Strath v Wick Groats or Staxigoe Utd
Ness or Carloway v Avoch or Kirkwall Hotspurs
Stromness Athletic or Wick Thistle v Pentland Utd or Lairg Rovers

Semi Final (6th August)

IRN Security or Sleat & Strath or Wick Groats or Staxigoe Utd v Black Rock Rovers or Golspie Stafford or Iochdar Saints or High Ormlie Hotspur
Ness or Carloway or Avoch or Kirkwall Hotspurs v Stromness Athletic or Wick Thistle or Pentland Utd or Lairg Rovers

Ness v Carloway will be a great day at a great ground but obviously a challenge from Dundee - although they pretty much all are.

If it has to be the mainland then Pentland ticks the box of a decent team, a league clash and a nice area to visit.

If time and cash isn't an issue get to Fivepenny. They have ten pin bowling which is more than Dundee has.

Ness v Carloway definitely if the weather's good, bar opened at 2pm on Saturday for a 2.30 kick off but you can watch the game from the beer garden. They usually have a band on after the game, last bus back to Stornoway is 8.20 which allows for a decent sesh, but it keeps open till midnight minimum.

Yeah, if you can get to Lewis, that's the best option and by far the best ground. It's unlikely any of the other games will be played on anything resembling an enclosed ground. Saying that, Coronation Park in Avoch is a decent "public park" venue. I wouldn't imagine any of the neutral venues will be anywhere particularly enticing, but never know. I'd probably be tempted to head up to Caithness for the weekend, Groats v Staxigoe a key game, or Dunnet for Pentland United. It's a great place to explore as well.

I went to Ness's ground last year (no game on, was just passing by and thought I'd have a swatch at it) looked a great place to watch a game of fitba. Will go back one day to watch a game and have a wee guga agus bovril at half time.

Superb day for Caithness football and really, it could be anyone's cup. I'm still leaning towards a Groats/Stabs final and think Groats will just nick it, but would be pleased to see any of these in the final. Particularly good to see a Thurso team, even if it isn't Swifts and delighted for Ness as well.

A clue about where the Ness v Pentland is happening from Ness FC FB.

Quote

Ness FC will play Pentland United in the Semi  Final of the Highland Amateur Cup on Saturday 6th August at a venue to be confirmed on the mainland. We would hope that as many fans as possible will go to support the boys. We have reserved spaces on the ferry that day for our fans and we are also running buses that day from Ness to Stornoway and Ullapool to Ross Shire/ Inverness.

Groats humped Pentland Utd 5-1 last night in the league, makes things interesting.

...and then Stabs beat Groats 3-1 in the Mackintosh Cup final. Albeit, Groats were playing with 10 men for a hour.
