Norman Gillies

…de la Press & Journal:

The director of Scotland's only Gaelic college is to be honoured by the Highland branch of the Saltire Society.

Professor Norman Gillies will receive the award for an outstanding contribution to Highland culture at the Culloden Visitor Centre on St Andrew's Day, on Friday.

Mr Gillies has been involved with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig at Sleat on Skye since the advent of its full-time courses in 1983. Under his leadership, the college has successfully expanded its academic provision and is now recognised as the National Centre for Gaelic Language and Culture.
