Links to Scottish Gaelic Movies & Books
Thought I'd give this a try. A couple of us on the Facebook group Let's Learn Scottish Gaelic created these. I've uploaded the documents to Google Drive, and you may need an account to access them. Please let me know if this works or doesn't. These are Word documents and each file provides links to the sources.

Thanks to @AJFJdb for creating pdfs and providing links to them!
Hey, would also recommend the website www.sgeulachdan.scot - it’s a selection of animated traditional tales with the accompanying text in Gaelic. We use it fairly frequently in primary schools and it can be great for tuning your ear and looking out for familiar words and patterns.
Haven't checked the links yet but if you go on a website called FilmG there's a whole heap of short films made in Gaelic, all of which have subtitles. Many of them are made by or for children as well so the Gaelic is simpler.
If you trawl back far enough you'll even find ones I've made...
im gonna throw this one here, i worked on it as an animator in my first year of college about 7 or 8 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2vUnWGd_6s&t=207s
(the animation is not good at all, it was our first year and we had like 3 weeks to make it. just ignore it and enjoy the gaelic lol)
It’s worth mentioning An Comunn Gàidhealach who organise the National Mòd. This is a great cultural event which includes such things as mouth music. (Puirt à Beul) pibroch or Classical bagpipe music (piobearachd) poetry etc..
There are also provincial mods in various places in Scotland.
Ask a native Gaelic speaker how to pronounce “Am Mòd”. If you get it wrong, prepare for a snigger or two.
I found this channel on YouTube. He is very clear and also tells stories with lots of explanation. Good for beginners. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVX7RajLZmm8i7LEuli05tw
Yes - sharing works now when logged in to Google. Here are a couple of pdfs that should not require a log in to Jumpshare.
Note -- these are the same files as those on google so if you got the google docs you don't need these.
