Scotland: Signs and Symbols

by Mark

The interesting thing about Scottish signs in the Isle of Skye is that they are also written in the Gaelic language (pronounced “gah-lick” in Scotland, as opposed to “gay-lick” in Ireland). Our tour guide mentioned that it’s also a dying language and there is an effort to preserve it by teaching it as a second language in Skye’s middle schools. However, when we got to Glasgow and Edinburgh try stopped with the Gaelic.

Also noticed that the metal lids on the street seem more functional than decorative compared to Iceland. Many of the street signs are similar though.
