Scottish Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMAs) Consultation

Bòrd na Gàidhlig has submitted a response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on Scottish Highly Protected Marine Areas.

The response included the following text:

We are responding to this consultation because the viability of the Gaelic language rests on viable Gaelic-speaking communities: particularly those in island and rural areas in the Highlands and Islands.
These communities are also tradition bearers for the language and their loss would have irreversible negative effect on the indigenous culture which has survived for hundreds of years.
