310: Gaelic, Golspie and Glasgow

Gaelic is an adjective that means "pertaining to the Gaels", including language and culture. As a noun, it may refer to the group of languages spoken by the Gaels, or to any one of the languages individually. Different "flavours" of Gaelic are spoken in parts of Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the Isle of Man. In most of Wales, and parts of Scotland, signs are in English and Gaelic. As you can see, Gaelic is a very different language from English
I've been staying in the village of Golspie for the last week or so. This afternoon I'm heading off to Glasgow and tomorrow to Iceland. 

Icelandair have a very cunning auction to allow folks to bid for an upgrade to the cabin class. Remind me to tell you about it one day. 
To finish, here is a song sung in Gaelic by the Scottish group Runrig. Subtitles in Gaelic and English.
