Scottish Gaelic songs have been around for centuries, passed down from generation to generation. But due to the decline of Gaelic speakers in Scotland, finding Traditional Gaelic songs was a wee bit tricky in the past. But nowadays thanks to the Internet and things such as youtube, finding songs has never been easier.
There is just something about Gaelic music that makes it unique, it is such a beautiful language. Although some people do not understand the lyrics or the words, many people from across the globe feel some sort of connection to the music. I have been an avid listener for many years now, below are a list of my favourite songs with a link to them on youtube. If you have never listened to Gaelic music then why not give them a wee listen and see if you enjoy them:
