does anyone know the adjective order in Gaelic? for example would it be "tha còta fada gheal aig Iain - Ian has a long white coat" or would it be "tha còta gheal fada aig Iain"?

I suspect that it would be the first one. So long as the adjectives follow the noun, the order should depend on which you want to say.
