The Environment | An Àrainneachd

It's more important now than it ever has been that we look after the Environment and discuss and challenge the biggest issues threatening it. Gaelic is a language with deep-rooted ties to Scotland's landscape and environment, so we thought you might want to learn some Gaelic environmental words.

Tha e nas cudromaiche an-dràsta na bha e a-riamh a bhith a' coimhead às dèidh na h-Àrainneachd agus a bhith a’ deasbad mu dheidhinn agus a’ toirt dùbhlan do na cùisean as motha a tha ga bagairt. Tha ceanglaichean domhainn eadar a' Ghàidhlig agus sealladh-tìre agus àrainneachd na h-Alba, mar sin bha sinn den bheachd gur dòcha gum biodh tu airson faclan àrainneachail Gàidhlig ionnsachadh.
