A new service has been released by the Gaelic Development Agency to provide you with a sound-file of Gaelic pronounciation of Scottish mountain names.
All you need is the mountain’s name and it’s OS NGB, then go to www.cnag.org/en/mountain-names and enter your request. This seems to be powered by Gaelic speaking humans so please don’t abuse the service! And if you don’t have a map handy to get the OS NGB … try this really useful site http://gridreferencefinder.com.
Personally I’m holding out for the app that you just point at the hill and it speaks to you …
Now, whether we should just pronounce the names phonetically or add that Gaelic flair and risk confusing the emergency services is up to you to discuss over a mince pie and a mulled wine. Have a good Christmas!
