Local residents are being invited to have their say on Aberdeenshire Council’s draft Gaelic Language Plan which is now available for statutory consultation.

Aberdeenshire Council said it "recognises the value and importance of Gaelic to Scotland and is committed to promoting its use and status across the region."

"Our plan illustrates how we intend to increase the visibility of Gaelic, promote its acquisition and learning, and encourage its use in Aberdeenshire as our contribution to safeguarding its future in Scotland."

The consultation is now open and runs for six weeks – available for viewing at https://engage.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/
