Tell your sweetie you love them . . . in Gaelic.

To sample my books, be sure to visit my website @

Valentine’s Day is upon us. Why not try something new? In the spirit of The Claymore and Surcoat, let’s learn a few terms of endearment in Scottish Gaelic.

Mo leannan. (ma len-on) My beloved.file5991298749300

Mo ghràdh. (ma rah) My love.

a ghràdh. (ah rah) Dear. Use it in combination with your sweetie’s name. William, a ghràdh. (William, dear.)

Tha gràdh agam ort. (ha rah a-gum ort) I love you. The literal translation is, ‘I have love on you.’ Mmmm… I just love that. It sound so… well, Scottish.

Might take a wee bit of practice, but think of how surprised your baby will be. Or, if your sweetheart is anything like mine, he will shake his head and wonder why he married such a strange person!
