Fàgail vs falbh for 'leaving', is there any difference?

Exactly, this has to be 'Bidh mi a’ fàgail an taighe aig cairteal gu naoi' or 'Bidh mi a’ falbh on taigh aig cairteal gu naoi'

Use "fàg" for "leaving behind". "falbh" also works for "go away".

Scratch - Cànan prògramachaidh don chlann is òigridh

A bheil cuimhne agaibh air Minesweeper? Seo tionndadh dheth a rinn mi le Scratch agus a ghabhas cluich sa bhrabhsair.

Briog air na leacagan ach feuch nach briog thu air mèinn!

Am Faclair Beag - Faclan a dh'fhaodadh cur ann

Rinn sinn atharrachadh air an Fhaclair Bheag on chionn goirid ach an lean sin air GOC a thaobh sin o nach eil sinn an dùil gun lean daoine air an sgrìobhadh eile 's nach dèan e cus cron a thaobh fuaimneachaidh. B' fheàrr leinn gearr -> gearradh ach iarraidh GOC geàrr -> gearradh.

Audiobooks, graded level and short stories for Gaelic learners?

Those have been written in Gaelic originally and have been edited in a real publishing process. Don't worry, you will not get any Google tr*nsl*t* crapola from that shop, although some books might not stick 100% to GOC. The book you linked already has a big whopping grammar error in its title, never...

Audiobooks, graded level and short stories for Gaelic learners?

I can also recommend this one for lower intermediate: https://gaelicbooks.org/index.php?route ... =dorchadas

Short stories and poems written by schoolchildren. They are interesting to read but don't require too much vocabulary.

Audiobooks, graded level and short stories for Gaelic learners?

The Lasag series is good for intermediate learners - they have an English summary at the top of each chapter and a small glossary

Names

Something with "creag" in it, maybe?

We have a good free online dictionary: https://www.faclair.com/

Pick something and then post both the English version and your attempt, and we'll try to fix it for you so that it will be correct.

Cait' Caite/ bheil

Yes, it's a bit like contractions. In "Càite a bheil", the 2 sounds that I underlined are pronounced the same, so they usually get pulled into one.

Càite bheil is an unusual spelling for it though, Càit' a bheil is the usual way to spell it.

Correct/most natural forms of the conditional tense of 'to be'

No, "bhiodh mi" is never used.

I have never seen the "bhinn" spelling before, but it's entirely possible that people shorten it like that when speaking. I have never paid attention to that though.
