About Us

Fàilte gu Uibhist a Tuath! Welcome to the Isle of North Uist!


Our on-demand language classes are the ideal opportunity for island visitors and locals to experience learning the native Gaelic language which is connected in these islands with everyday life from crofting to fishing, shopping and pub culture. The richness of the language spoken in local dialects encourages you to listen and try and converse and learn new words and phrases along the way. Whether you are passing through North Uist or live locally, get in touch to book your own Gaelic language learning experience.

Wir hatten einen fantastischen Kurz-Kurs bei Ann auf Uist! Dabei konnten wir sehr viel über die Aussprache, Betonung und die aktuelle Anwendung der gälischen Sprache lernen. Das Wichtigste aber war die sympathische, lockere Art von Ann, die viel Geduld hatte und so viele Tipps und Tricks gezeigt hat. Es hat wahnsinnig viel Spaß gemacht und mich darin bestärkt, weiter zu machen. Vielen Dank, Ann!

‘A hugely enjoyable experience. Ann is a brilliantly enthusiastic and patient teacher. I would highly recommend a short immersive course and will definitely be back for more. Tapadh leat.’
