Gaelic Language Plan (GLP)

Gaelic and crofting are intimately connected. Indeed, it could be said that crofting is the strongest bastion of the Gaelic language; and that Gaelic in its turn has strengthened and supported crofting, helping to anchor it through many changes.

The Crofting Commission has, of course, a statutory duty under the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 to play its part in promoting the language, but the unique link with crofting gives us an additional responsibility as well as enthusiasm for this task.

We have a commitment to the National Gaelic Language Plan and the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005.

This Plan sets out a formal structure for our support of the Gaelic language, with new initiatives and clear targets and there is a strong commitment throughout the Commission to see Gaelic thrive.
