Gaelic language plan

We recognise that Gaelic is an integral part of Scotland's heritage and national identity

We fully endorse the aspirations of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 and the objectives of the associated national plan.

We are committed to playing our part in securing the status and future of Gaelic as a living language in Scotland and as a distinctive aspect of our country's cultural heritage.

We wish to support the revitalisation of the language and we will collaborate closely with the Bòrd na Gàidhlig and our community planning partners to achieve this aspiration. In particular, we will promote Gaelic in the corporate functioning of the council and also promote the acquisition and use of Gaelic, particularly through our learning and leisure services.

Our Gaelic Language Plan details the actions we will take to develop awareness and use of the Gaelic language between 2016 and 2021.
