A project is underway to boost the delivery of outdoor activity training through the Gaelic language.


Based at Glenmore Lodge, the national outdoor activity training centre, the Spòrs Gàidhlig project will eventually see four people trained to deliver a wide range of outdoor activities to Gaelic speaking young people and other groups.


The first 12-month project, which will run until September 2018, has already seen three people employed by Spòrs Gàidhlig, who are now based at Glenmore Lodge: a project co-ordinator; and two Gaelic language trainee instructors.


The £300,000 project, under the banner of ‘Spòrs Gàidhlig’ has been developed by Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG).


A strong focus will be placed on the development of Gaelic Medium Education (GME). Until now opportunities for GME pupils to undertake exciting and challenging outdoor and adventurous activities through the language have been extremely limited.







Iain MacAulay, Chairman of Comunn na Gàidhlig, along with the Spòrs Gàidhlig team and Shaun Roberts, Glenmore Lodge principal.
