Newtonmore's reserves will need to beat Beauly if there are to progress to the final of this year's Highland Industrial Supplies Sutherland Cup.
The draw for the 2021 Highland Industrial Supplies Sutherland Cup semi-final took place yesterday afternoon at Blairbeg Park, Drumnadrochit, where the final will be played on October 16.
The other tie will see Lovat play Lochside Rovers or Kinlochshiel
Newtonmore emphatically knocked out Kyles in the last round while Beauly will be looking to make it to their first Sutherland Cup Final since winning it in 1957.
2019 finalists Lochside Rovers and Lovat could meet each other in the semi-final if Lochside can beat Kinlochshiel in the outstanding quarter-final match.
The semi-finals will take place on September 4 at neutral grounds which will be announced by the Camanachd Association soon.
Garry Mackintosh of sponsors HIS said: “It has certainly thrown up some fascinating ties.
"I will be especially interested in keeping an eye on what happens between Beauly and Newtonmore and should Lochside beat Kinlochshiel we will have a repeat of the 2019 final in the semi-finals which should be exciting.
"Anyone who knows me will know that Glenurquhart Shinty Club is my home and Blairbeg is their home so I am delighted that the final is coming here."
Camanachd Association chief Derek Keir commented: “The next two months are going to be truly exciting for everyone in the shinty community as we progress into cup final season.
"This is testament to all the hardworking volunteers at clubs right across the country who enabled us to restart our sport and everyone involved should feel proud that we have been able to deliver a season of shinty despite the challenging circumstances.
"I, like everyone else, eagerly anticipate the HIS Sutherland Cup semi-finals and wish the best of luck to all teams involved.”
