Caberfeidh and Kinlochshiel could face each other in the Macaulay Cup quarter finals if they win their first round clash.
Caberfeidh, who finished seventh in the Premiership in 2019 have been given a home draw as they will take on Lovat at Strathpeffer.
While Kinlochshiel, who finished sixth in the Premiership will travel to take on National Division champions Fort William who gained promotion by winning all 14 games in shinty's second tier during 2019.
If both Ross teams progress, they will meet each other in the last eight and Kinlochshiel will have home advantage at Reraig.
The competition is split into north and south sections with the winners of each section meeting each other in the final.
Kinlochshiel have won the Macaulay Cup twice in their history, both in the last four years in 2016 and 2018.
Caberfeidh have never won the competition.
Last season, Premiership champions Kingussie defeated Oban Camanachd 3-2 in the final to lift the cup for the 24th time.
