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 ages and 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 seasons, as well as information about our college facilities and what to expect when you join us.

We also offer day-long refresher classes for Gaelic learners in Edinburgh, offered in the spring to support our students in the Central Belt and we are currently working on next year's schedules.

So please keep an eye on our website for updates and new additions, or get in touch with our team and we will be happy to answer your questions.

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.

Our office will be closed from Monday 5th - Friday 9th September.  We hope to advertise our next shedule of courses by the end of September.

With kind regards,
