/ Coire an t-Sneachda & Cairngorm pronunciation guide
Comunn na GÓidhlig are pleased to be able to offer a soundfile guide to the place-names of the Northern Cairngorms. Through the community Gaelic website www.speygaelic.org we have uploaded soundfiles of some place-names that climbers may use frequently. We hope that climbers will find this resource useful. Enjoy!
That's a good site. Is the Gaelic speaker from Speyside? Her accent sounds a bit strange.
That explains it! :0)
This is great - my pronunciation will still amuse the locals though...
Brilliant! But what about all those enjoyable and useless arguments we have enjoyed for years?
And I thought Welsh pronnunciation was hard!
We will soon be putting up alternative soundfiles which we have recorded with the Strathspey dialect. This will mean people can hear the two together.
