A group of Gaelic language learners travelled from Renfrewshire to visit Argyll and Bute Council’s Furan language centre – on a Gaelic guided tour.

The 26 learners had a tour of the learning centre’s facilities, and met with local Gaelic speakers who attend the centre’s conversation group.

The visitors, Clann Gaidhlig (children of Gaelic) were invited to visit after the Oban and Renfrewshire tutors got together and organised the tour.

The Furan language centre has established regular learning workshops, sessions bringing together older people who speak Gaelic, a presence on the local radio and Gaelic Bookbug sessions for children throughout Argyll and Bute.

Argyll and Bute Council’s Gaelic Language Plan recognises the importance of Gaelic and promotes the learning, usage and study of the language.
