Sometimes 'agus' sounds like 'ah-yus' and in this example it sounds more like 'aggus'.. why is this?

I always thought that slàinte could also mean welcome. I've seen it used in this context in the Hebrides. Have I been mistaken here?

When the lady's voice says "Anna" in Gaidhlig, it sounds like it has an "m" in it, like Alma.
