Highland League – 22-23

The Breedon Highland Football League was instituted in 1893 and sits immediately below Scottish League Two in the SFA’s “pyramid”, at Tier 5, in parallel with the Lowland League.

It operates with eighteen member clubs playing each other home and away.  Bottom club Fort William became the first club ever to be relegated from the league last season (appeal pending) and they have been replaced by North Super League champions Banks o’ Dee.

As before, the League champions play off against the Lowland champions for the right to challenge League Two’s bottom club for a place in the SPFL.  Last season, Fraserburgh lost to Bonnyrigg Rose.
