Gaelic at Historic Scotland sites

Unread post by Tearlach61 » Fri Nov 02, 2007 4:40 am

While we were visiting around Scotland, we visited a number of places that were run by Historic Scotland. Example Urquart Castle on Loch Ness. At many places, they offer mp3 players that you can listen to. It's kind of a tour guide. They offer them in many languages. But not Gaelic. I know because I asked. It wasn't to be cheeky, but I thought the guy took it that way.

It seems to me these should be offered in Gaelic. If they're offered in Japanese, they should be in Gaelic too.

Well, many public bodies are preparing Gaelic Language plans, perhaps Historic Scotland is one of them. I also noticed that parts of their website are available in Gaelic. So it seems that there is an oppurtunity there to these services offered in Gaelic.

I doubt I am the only one who would use them.
