Gaelic Signs

Highland Council has prioritised Gaelic and English bi-lingual signs.

Keeping the language alive.

Dr Johnson and James Boswell on their tour of Scotland reported that there was a town in the highlands so big that the people at one end of the town spoke a different language from the people at the other end. That town was Nairn, where the fishertown folk spoke the Gaelic and the landward town folk spoke English.
