Bilingual signs in Glasgow

One of the core commitments in Glasgow City Council’s Gaelic Language Plan is to increase the use of Gaelic on signs in city centre offices and introduce Gaelic into signs as they are upgraded or replaced in other buildings.


Bilingual signs have been introduced at the City Chambers, 220 High Street, Glasgow Gaelic School and city entry routes in preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. This will help increase the visibility of Gaelic in and around the city and continue to promote a positive image for the language.


Increasing the visibility of Gaelic in Glasgow is likely to be a continued feature of the Council’s next Gaelic Language Plan. Discussions about the structure and content of the new Plan began recently with Bòrd na Gàidhlig and will continue over the next few months. The wider community – individuals, delivery partners, public, private and voluntary organisations – will be actively involved and engaged throughout the development process. We anticipate that the new Plan will be approved by Bòrd na Gàidhlig in 2013.
