The Royal Celtic Society is one of four organisations who have been selected to supply The Scotsman newspaper's Gaelic page, alongside the BBC, the University of Edinburgh and Sabhal Mor Ostaig, the University of the Highlands and Islands' Gaelic language college on Skye.

The Scotsman is unique among Scotland's quality national dailies in producing regular Gaelic content and has been publishing a Gaelic language page eTheScotsmanvery Saturday since 1926.

The first of the Royal Celtic Society's Gaelic pages appeared in the newspaper on Saturday 9th April with a comment piece on Scottish land management. They will continue to appear every four weeks, alternating with the three other suppliers involved.

This agreement represents clear recognition of the Royal Celtic Society as an organisation at the top of its game, with an important role to play in promoting the Gaeliv language and Scotland's national heritage.

The Society will use the opporunity to encourage young journalists working in Gaelic by commissioning them to write this page. Initially, we have retained Alasdair H Campbell, a journalist and translator working on Skye, to produce the first pages.

The Society looks forward to a long and productive relationship with one of Scotland's leading national newspapers.
