The Scottish Parliament has a push on the use of its Gaelic services, encouraging visitors, MSPs and staff to take advantage of the many opportunities to use and learn about the language.

The drive is part of the Parliament’s on-going commitment to give Gaelic equal status as English.

The Scottish Parliament’s Gaelic Development Officer, Dr Alasdair MacCaluim, said: “As Gaelic is an integral part of Scotland’s heritage, we’d like to encourage all speakers of the language to use your Gaelic in your Parliament.

Visitors and staff that are non-Gaelic speakers are also being encouraged to use the opportunity to learn more about this rich heritage language.”
