Is "Càit a bheil" synonymous with "Càite a bheil"?

Yes. Here's what it says about that in the Tips and Notes for the "Home" skill.

Càite a bheil?

This is how you ask where something is:

Càite a bheil am biadh? - Where is the food?

The Gaelic Orthographic Conventions document (not a page turner) recommends this now be written as Càit a bheil. This is pronounced the same and both spellings are frequently seen, although the one we have used is more retro. We will probably update this in the next iteration of the course.
