Sutherland have been rewarded for winning their preliminary round Scottish Cup match with a home tie against Bishopton.

Sutherland overcame Orkney last Sunday to seal their spot in the competition proper, while Bishopton made the most of their home advantage to beat Lothian.

Now, though, they face a near-500 mile round trip for the first round, with Sutherland undoubtedly hoping to capitalise on that to make it into the second round.

Elsewhere, the only other Highlands and Islands League outfit still in the competition Clachnacuddin have been drawn away to Raith Rovers.

First round matches will take place on Sunday, November 21.
