About Us

The Gaelic Society of Inverness was established in 1871 for the purpose of “cultivating the language, poetry and music of the Scottish Highlands and generally furthering the interests of the Gaelic-speaking people”.

Currently, the Society arranges a programme of talks, publishes volumes of papers and organises a memorial service at Culloden, a showcase of Gaelic music and an annual bus trip and dinner, as well as participating in various campaigns.
