Scottish Gaelic How To Say The Days Of The Week (With Phonetics)

Perhaps you are thinking of visiting Scotland, you live in Scotland or you are a big Outlander fan and you are interested in learning some Scottish Gaelic words, phrases, sayings and pronunciation. Scottish Gaelic is a language that I am very passionate about and I was to make it as accessible as possible for beginners!

I have started a new playlist on Youtube to help those with no experience Learn Scottish Gaelic

In this video, we learn how to say the days of the week in Scottish Gaelic (with phonetics)


Monday – Diluain

Tuesday – Dimàirt

Wednesday – Diciadain

Thursday – Diardaoin

Friday – Dihaoine

Saturday – Disathairne

Sunday – Didòmhnaich/Là na Sàbaid


I would love for you to join me in learning more about Scottish Gaelic and hope that you will follow for future bitesize videos.



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!

  1. This is really useful and so lovely, thank you so much, from a mum learning Gaelic with a son who is in Gaelic primary. The pronounciation is the hardest for me and these phonetics are so useful.

    1. Thank you! That means a lot to hear!
      Fantastic to hear that your son is learning and well done to you for trying as well!

      If there are any videos that would help, please let me know. I am planning to get back into making them and I really want to keep them as simple as possible for people like you!

      I really want to keep it accessible and somewhat less daunting than I think it can appear!

      Lauren 🙂
