I dont speak gaelic, but did learn for my mistakes using it in a lecture i once gave im Aberdeen about my great great grandfather,,, and was gently informed afterwards of my error.... Never forgot it.,,,,,,
Don't worry Docbob, I knew that : that is exactly why I took care to mention "highlands" just after A'Ghaidhealtachd, and my intention was exactly to talk about both culture and landscapes. It was not at all an error.
Happy you mention it clearly
