I am not a Gaelic speaker - but this site may give you a place to start reading about similarities/differences between Scots and Irish Gaelic...

I am not a linguist as such, Joseph, tho i am a keen Gaelic learner and supporter. But theres some historic background to the similarities tho i am not sure about the exact dates. At one time some of the Irish kings held some land in Scotland, the name was Dalriada. I think it must have been in north Argyll or south Knoydart. Catriona might know that better than i do. Interestingly, the legend of Dirdre relates to this irish-scottish link ...

Anyway, there ye are lol. not much but a bit. Och aye, and theres mainly difference in writing (prob in pronounciation as well but i usually can figure out a bit when i see it written and it is not too complicated). Tioraidh an-drasda.

If you can't get a copy of the Scottish Spell Checker, maybe you can get your hands on a pirated copy of the Scottish Windows 98...
