Does Scottish Gaelic have an urban dialect?

I’m from Ireland and I go to an urban Gaelscoil where people speak what’s usually called “Urban Irish” or “Neo-Irish” which is pretty much a new-ish form of Irish which a lot of English influence especially on pronunciation (for example pronouncing “mo ghluaisteáin” as “muh gloo-ash-tawn” instead of “muh ghloo-ush-t(y)awn(y)”. I heard something about young people altering spelling (spelling ‘an-diugh’ as ‘n ju’) and I’m just wondering if such a (sub-)dialect exists.
