    “Gaelic activists clash” was the frontpage teaser. Guthan nan Eilean won’t be complaining about deepening interest in Hebridean Gaelic… Summer break interrupted to mark the return of the West Highland Free Press to print – with a two-page spread on #Gaelic. pic.twitter.com/GS0RgGCs7G — Guthan nan Eilean – Island Voices (@GuthanVoices) August 8, 2020
