Why is this not also an acceptable translation, it is certainly a more natural English phrasing?

People also speak Gaelic in the lowlands

I hear the term Gaelic and English. But also hear the term Scottish. Context suggests that that is NOT Gaelic or English but a third separate language.

True?

Are you referring to Scots? Scots is a Germanic language, much like English, and very different to Gaelic. :)
