Learn a Gaelic Song

Songs are important in Gaelic culture – many people become interested in the language as they enjoy the songs. Maybe you’ve heard a song that you have loved and that has inspired you to learn more about the language.

Programmes like Caithream Ciùil and A’ Mire ri Mòr which play Gaelic songs are extremely popular, and these will prove useful when learning Gaelic. You will also find a treasure trove of Gaelic songs on the website for Aig Cridhe Ar Ciùil.

This section aims to help you learn a Gaelic song yourself. It will take you through a popular song line-by-line, verse-by-verse and finally through the complete song.

Why not start learning 'S i Mòrag and work your way through the five songs?
