Economic reports and research

Gaelic research - Ar Stòras Gàidhlig

The economic and social value of Gaelic as a unique asset for Scotland is the focus of a pioneering study which was published in November 2014.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) has led a partnership project to research ways in which Gaelic is currently being used to deliver economic and social benefits to businesses, social enterprises and communities, and how its impact can be maximised.

Entitled Ar Stòras Gàidhlig (Our Gaelic Resource), the resulting report demonstrates how the language is currently being used to add value in a wide variety of circumstances and highlights its considerable potential to bring further benefits to businesses, communities and individuals.

Ar Stòras Gàidhlig is available in full and summary forms.
