The Scottish Gaelic language is a Celtic language native to Scotland. The historical strongholds of the language were and to a great extent remain the Hebrides of Scotland, especially the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Skye, and Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. Recently, cityward migration has seen a substantial rise in the number of speakers living in Scottish cities. It is estimated that over 10% of Gaelic speakers currently live in the City of Glasgow.
