The production and delivery of a Gaelic Language Plan fits comfortably into our organisation’s operations and we are well-positioned to further the aims of Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
Within our Conservation remit, the National Park Authority appreciates the need to conserve our cultural heritage and recognises the role the Gaelic language has to play in this respect. Our Visitor Experience work touches over 3.5million people every year within the National Park area and this clearly represents an opportunity to raise the profile of Gaelic to this wide and diverse audience. Our responsibility for Rural Development has the potential to ensure that the promotion of Gaelic is acknowledged throughout our communities across the Park.
This Gaelic Language Plan confirms our organisation’s commitment to the language and hope that we will come to be recognised as a significant contributor to the protection and development of the language throughout the country.
We are currently in the process of developing our second Gaelic Language Plan (2017-2022). If you would like to get involved in the public consultation of this second iteration find out more here.
