Re: Òran Gàidhlig na Seachdain?

Mòran tàing for the fascinating discussion around seòladh – I won’t have any problem remembering that word now. I’ve been looking again at the lyrics to Alba and one of the first things I noticed was that although I’ve been up enough Munros to know beinn as mountain I wouldn’t have recognised beannt...

Òran Gàidhlig na Seachdain?

Feasgar math, and thanks again / mòran taing for all the ideas in the tips thread. I'm going to follow the suggestion of finding a book that works for me and aim to go steadily through that.
