Gaelic

You will have noticed that The Nevis Range Ski Centre now uses bilingual signs in Gaelic and English. This is part of the national initiative to support the usage and acquisition of Gaelic in Scotland. All the Scottish Ski Centres are located on hills with Gaelic names recognising the importance of Gaelic to each area.
