An Comunn Gàidhealach was founded in Oban in 1891. It has supported the teaching, learning and use of the Gaelic language and the study and cultivation of Gaelic literature, history, music and art for over 100 years.
Through the organisation and running of the Royal National Mòd and a network of provincial Mòds across Scotland, An Comunn Gaidhealach furthers the aims of supporting and developing all aspects of the Gaelic language, culture, history and heritage at local, national and international levels.

The Gaelic Assessment Scheme has been in place for a number of years and acts as a benchmark to verify competitors’ fluency levels in competitions and uphold the standard of linguistic skill. The scheme also contributes to the wider role of increasing Gaelic fluency levels among adults as a result.
Appointments for Gaelic Assessment can be made any time throughout the year, excluding September. However, An Comunn Gàidhealach would prefer all entrants needing a Gaelic Assessment card to compete in the Royal National Mòd to sit their assessment before entry to avoid disappointment.
Please note that all competitors needing Gaelic Assessment for the 2018 Royal National Mòd onwards will be required to gain their card before entering competitions.
