Scottish Gaelic is one of the national languages of Scotland. The language was once spoken across much of Scotland, or Alba, and is evident today in many different areas of modern Scottish life including education, broadcasting, heritage and the arts.
Just under half the population of Sleat are Gaelic speakers and not only will you find generous Gaelic hosts, a vibrant traditional culture and if you’re lucky, a very palatable tè bheag, you can also take the plunge to learn the language yourself.
Sleat is home to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the National Centre for Gaelic Language and Culture, which sits proudly on the peninsula at Ostaig. Here students from all over the world come to learn the language, whether it be for 5 days or 5 years! The College offers a range of courses from introductory courses for beginners to degree and postgraduate programmes taught through the medium of Gaelic.
Sabhal Mòr Ostaig also hosts a programme of residencies for artists in music, literature and the visual arts and plays hosts to the many concerts, films and events run throughout the year by Seall and Club Film.
