Seachdain na Gaidhlig (World Gaelic Week)

This week we celebrate Seachdain na Gaidhlig (World Gaelic Week) taking place from Monday 20 February – Sunday 26 February with the theme “Coming Together”.

The first ever Seachdain na Gàidhlig (World Gaelic Week) took place in 2022, entirely online during lockdown and, thanks to support from Bord na Gàidhlig, there‘s over 100 events taking place across Scotland for 2023. 

This week's an opportunity to connect people from across the world, visitors and local communities alike, to promote, use and learn Gaelic language. The Gaelic language and its associated culture represents a compelling opportunity for the Scottish tourism industry as a unique selling point and authentic part of the experience of visiting Scotland. 

The week creates an opportunity for both Gaelic speakers and those without the language to take part in a way that suits them; here in Scotland and further afield.


On, we’ve got a selection of content available which includes Gaelic culture for you to use and showcase on your channels.

Here are a few examples of these blogs: 

Our consumer content also includes video, which is perfect for sharing across your social channels. Take the time to watch our "Scottish Gaelic Explained" video.

Gaelic Toolkit

In 2021, we launched our Gaelic Toolkit which has been designed to help the tourism industry build upon the intrigue visitors from across the globe have for the Gaelic language. Our new asset highlights many ways to use and promote Gaelic and its culture to create a more immersive visitor experience, such as teaching staff some basic phrases and translating place names to reveal their Gaelic origins and meanings.

To help you celebrate Seachdain na Gaidhlig (World Gaelic Week) and beyond, take a look at our Gaelic Toolkit to help you harness the growing international interest in our national language.

Our toolkit also contains key links and resources from partner organisations to assist you with learning Gaelic, Gaelic literature and culture, Gaelic-focused centres and tourist guides, plus much more.
