Not meant in any way as a comprehensive dictionary, this is a quick pocket reference. For its design, it is very good. Scots Gaelic to English/ English to Scots Gaelic that is easy to use and very handy. Nice for beginners.

It' VERY basic, no doubt and also rather old. The main reason for it still being around seems to be the lack of other portable dictionaries which go in both directions. Only really of use to total beginners.

This is a very basic book written for the beginner and designed to be carried around in your "pocket". Chances are, if you know something of the Gaelic Language, you'll find many words that simply aren't listed in it. It's good as a ready reference anytime for the MOST COMMON words used, but it's far from complete.

HASH(0x8ece8270) out of 5 stars What a disappointment! 13 July 2001
By Claudia S. Murtaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
[....] I am currently wrapped up in the Diana Gabaldon series which is set in Scotland. I want to know how to say the Gaelic words used in the books. I majored in foreign languages and never had a dictionary that didn't include pronunciation. I returned the dictionary immediately (along with the Irish dictionary which was equally lacking).

HASH(0x8eaf1ca8) out of 5 stars Great Dic!! 27 July 2000
By R. J Kaucher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The problem with many of the reviews here is that they expect this book to be like McB's Etymological Dictionary.
This book is 100% perfect for the learner who is just starting out. It lists the entries and their uses with the article, VERY important for people new to the language. The book is worth the price just for that.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for an inexpensive gaelic-english-gaelic dictionary to use as a complement to the Teach yourself GAelic course, this is probably your best bet. A wonderful little book for beginners, though eventually you will want to get Dwelly's Gaelic-English, Thomson's English-Gaelic, and probably MacLellan's two-way as well if you continue with the language. However, these are an investment, especially if you get all three, so this one is best for starters. And because it gives the cases forms of the nouns, it will remain useful even when you are developing fluency.

HASH(0x8ec04c18) out of 5 stars Handy pocket-sized reference 28 Aug. 2000
By Zack Davisson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Scottish Gaelic-English/English-Scottish Gaelic Dictionary is a great portable reference for the Scots-Gaelic learner. It is less bulky than other, more complete, hardbound dictionaries, and contains a good selection of everyday vocabulary. I find it very easy to use and a great companion for lessons.
A must have for everyone starting this wonderful language.
