Visitor Comments

"I write to thank you for the warm reception and the orientation you gave us when we visited your studio. I was particularly delighted when I had the opportunity to do a mock directing, something I had not done for quite some time after graduating in TV Production since 1996. I have done ENG productions but hardly worked as a TV Director, sitting in the director'€™s chair.

I was very impressed by the facilities in the studio and the fact that only about 8 people are signed on for training. I was equally impressed by the performance of the music group in the other part of the school. I have since been listening to their music and the music on the CD you gave us.

I finally wish to thank you for lunch and the presents you gave us in a bag. It reminds me of my visit to Skye and your school which I will forever remember.

I hope I will have the opportunity to visit again one day while in the Highlands."


"My name is Lawrence from Coventry University. I want to thank you so much for making it possible to visit your college and I had a great time and it was a great experience for me to visit your television studio and even participating in recording a talk show in your television studio.

You have given me a great experience and joy, thanks for the gifts and souvenir all these I will always cherish. Thank you."


Ar dtús báire, ar son an ghrúpa Aonach Mhacha as Ard Mhacha , ba mhaith liom ár mbuíochas a chur in iúl as an fháilte chroíúil a cuireadh romhainn agus sinn ar cuairt ar Shabhal Mὸr Ostaig.

First of all, on behalf of the Aonach Mhacha group in Ard Mhacha I would like to express our sincerest thanks for the superb hospitality that we received during our visit to Sabhal Mór Ostaig.

Tá ard-áiseanna agaibh ag Sabhal Mὸr agus thuig muid go raibh paisean agus díogras ag na baill foirne ar bhuail muid leo don Ghàidhlig, do chultúr na Gàidhlige agus don oideachas lán-Ghàidhlige, rud a chuaigh go mór i bhfeidhm orainn uilig.

The facilities at Sabhal Mór are excellent and the staff that we met during our stay exuded an enthusiasm and passion for the Gáidhlig language and culture and for Gáidhlig medium education which was inspiring.

Eispéireas den scoth a bhí sa turas don ghrúpa uilig agus threisigh sé ár dtiomantas leis an chultúrlann úr a thógáil agus a fhíorú in Ard Mhacha.

The visit overall was an excellent experience for the group and strengthened our resolve to see the 'cultúrlann' project in Ard Mhacha through to fruition.

Bhí na hionadaithe uilig ó Shabhal Mὸr iontach fláithiúil dúinn le h-am a thabhairt dúinn le linn na cuairte agus tá muid go mór faoi chomaoin agat féin as an chuidiú fial leis an turas agus leis an chlár oibre a éascú.

Sabhal representatives were extremely generous with their time during our visit and we will remain forever grateful for your generous help and assistance in facilitating our stay and arranging the itinerary.

Guím gach rath agus dul chun cinn ar Shabhal Mὸr Ostaig agus bheinn buíoch díot dá dtiocfadh leat beannachtaí na Nollag a ghuí ar an fhoireann uilig ar ár son.

I wish you continued success and expansion at Sabhal Mór Ostaig and please pass on seasonal greetings to all your team.

Le buíochas agus le beannachtaí na Nollag


Gearóid Ó Machail
