Short Courses

Welcome to SMO Short Courses

For over 40 years Sabhal Mòr Ostaig has offered courses in the Gaelic language and in traditional music from our home on the Isle of Skye, building a solid reputation for experienced tutors and our warm and lively social atmosphere.

Each year, nearly a thousand people of all backgrounds come to us for instruction in Gaelic, Gaelic song, fiddle, button-box and accordion, photography and a range of other specialised subjects offered by our talented team of instructors.

Here on our website you will find a course schedule for our Easter and Summer courses, as well as information about our college facilities, accommodation and camping and what to expect when you join us.  Accommodation and meals are available at the College, with the added experience of staying on a Gaelic campus surrounded by a friendly community in an area of natural beauty.  We also advise that you read and understand our Terms & Conditions.

Whether returning to the college, or joining us for the first time, we hope you'll come and see us for a unique learning experience at SMO.
