Acair honoured at Scottish Gaelic Awards

20 November 2019

The Scottish Gaelic Awards reward all aspects of the Gaelic language and culture across the length and breadth of the country. This year, the prize for the special contribution went to Acair, the publisher based on the Isle of Lewis. Agnes Rennie and Margaret Ann Macleod collected the prize at the awards ceremony at Glasgow's Marriot Hotel on Tuesday 19 November 2019.

Acair Ltd was established in 1976 to provide Gaelic language materials for a ground-breaking bi-lingual education project in the Western Isles. Over 30 years later they are still one of the largest publishers of Gaelic language books from children's, fiction, educational to historical, and have published a huge variety of books, in English, bi-lingual and Scots.
