Gaelic road signs are set to appear across roads as part of new plans by the Scottish government.

Dual-language notices for towns and cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow will be placed on motorways and dual-carriageways after proposals were forwarded by Bord na Gaidhlig, reports Deadline News.

It is Scotland's national Gaelic agency and is hoping that the signs will bolster tourism and potentially encourage people to learn the language.

John Angus MacKay, chief executive of Bord na Gaidhlig, told the news provider: "We want the next generation of children to feel comfortable about being bilingual in a Scotland that visibly recognises the importance of that element of Scotland’s identity."

Mr MacKay added that VisitScotland should make more effort to emphasise the language in its promotional materials.

News of these new signs comes after the Liverpool Echo reported that signs have now been installed in Wirral to mark Merseyside's Viking background.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801392101-ADNFCR
