I was born in the Western Isles but grew up in Aberdeen so I have an East/West coast Gaelic language hybrid going on.

Dialects are a thing, even in Gaelic.

I have decided to start a new section to my channel which will focus on learning Scottish Gaelic (with phonetics) to help you with the Scottish Gaelic pronunciation as there are a lot of silent letters which can trip people up when learning.

I would love to help anyone looking to learn some Scottish Gaelic and hope this will be a welcome addition to the Gaelic/Gaidhlig videos already out there!
