    Hi, I don’t see an email address or any way to contact you! Can you please tell me if Eilean nan Selichan would be the correct way to say Isle of the Selkies, if selich is the singular noun for selkie?

    I am a little confused about the following, “Tha Anna an dòchas nach bi… (HA AHN-uh un DAWK-us nach be) I understood that a “D”, would sound like a “J” in Scots. As in “Deoch” would sound like “jock” or “De” would sound like “jay”

      The D has a different pronunciation depending if it is followed or preceded by a ‘broad’ or ‘slender’ consonant.
