COUNCILLORS have agreed to the second-generation Gaelic language plan which will be implemented in the Highlands over the next four years.

The new plan, which will run until 2016, will set out the Highland Council’s aims and ambitions to promote the language.

It is hoped the plan will contribute to increasing the number of Gaelic speakers.

Council convener Sandy Park said by fully adopting the plan, the Highland Council has reaffirmed its commitment to Gaelic and recognised the importance it has to the life and culture of the Highlands.

"When we launched our Gaelic language plan in 2008 we were proud to be the first public body in Scotland to do so," he said.

"Since then a lot of work has been done to promote the Gaelic language and culture."

The plan will now be submitted to Bòrd na Gàidhlig for ratification.
