From today (Monday 8 January 2018) members of the public are invited to comment on the second iteration of the National Galleries of Scotland’s Gaelic Language Plan. 

The five-year plan for 2018-23 has been developed in line with the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 and is due to be submitted for approval to the national Gaelic agency, Bòrd na Gàidhlig by 5 March 2018. 

This draft plan has been developed to support the aims of the current National Gaelic Language Plan, building on the progress made against the first plan. It sets out the organisation’s commitments to promoting and supporting the Gaelic language and details the actions that will be taken to increase the visibility and status of Gaelic in the galleries.

The commitments in the plan include supporting staff to learn or develop their Gaelic language skills, making teaching resources and gallery trails available in Gaelic and ensuring our planning processes take Gaelic into account at an early stage.

The consultation will run for six weeks, closing on Sunday 18 February 2018.

The plan can be viewed online at

Hard copies are available on request by phoning 0131 624 6473.
