The Gaelic language has been spoken in Argyll since around the 5th century when it first came to Scotland. The kingdom was of great importance in the spread of Christianity in Northern Britain after Columba founded Iona in 563 AD. Throughout our history the language has been a key element in developing many aspects of Scottish culture.
Argyll and Bute Council recognises the importance of Gaelic in our communities and will continue to sustain and promote a strong relationship with our Gaelic history, heritage and culture. If you require production support relating to the Gaelic language please get in touch, the film office will be able to connect you with native Gaelic speakers and local community groups and facilities to support your production.
