Scottish lochs and Gaelic in the Home

The latest newsletter from Electric Scotland has announced a new book being transcribed on the site, Folklore of Scottish Lochs and Springs, by James M. Mackinlay, and first published in 1893. See

In addition, the newsletter also carries a note from Finlay MacLeod of Comhairle nan Sgoiltean Àraich (CNSA), discussing the popularty of its new Gaelic in the Home course, designed to help parents raise their children confidently with the language at home. If you are interested in Scottish Gaelic, and in teaching it to your children, you can contact Finlay for advice - I met the man many years ago at a ceilidh in London, and he is very approachable! His details are as follows:
