The Inverness Cup was originally known as the Pattison Cup.

The Bells Cup was sponsored by the Bells Scotch Whisky brewery and operated by the North of Scotland FA between 1971 and 1980, this was divided into two regional competitions, West and East.

Several invitational tournaments are also included here, for example the MacKessack Quaich was held at MacKessack Park in Rothes and the Norfrost Cup was awarded to the winners of a match between Wick Academy and guest opponents
