Guth nan Siarach is a newly constituted grass-roots activism group based on the West Side of Lewis, one of the areas of the Scottish Gaidhealtachd with the highest density of Vernacular (or native) speakers of Gaelic. We are activists on behalf of Gaelic Vernacular speaker rights.
We will raise a number of core issues over the coming weeks with a view to establishing dialogue within our own communities and externally with Comhairle nan Eileanan Siar, Bòrd na Gàidhlig and the Scottish Government.
Sign up as a supporter today to receive our newsletter with articles, campaign links, listings of online seminars and details of how to become a full member or associate member of Guth nan Siarach.
We welcome support and ally-ship from new speakers and Gaelic learners, in Scotland and overseas, as well as those who simply wish to see our Vernacular Speaker communities thrive within our unique island setting.
