"Is toil leam fhìn an Gearasdan."

Translation:I like Fort William myself.

The word "fhìn" sounds very peculiar - it is not recognisable. I played it several times and it still did not sound correct.


I agree. It's like he swallowed the mic on that one word.


Just wondering why fhin is needed. Why is toil leam is not enough without the emphasis of fhin?


My guess is the need for emphasis (as you've said) in whatever conversation this sentence would be a part of. More vocabulary added to the toolbox!
