Only about 1% of Scots speak Gaelic, mostly in the Outer Hebrides. The BBC braodcasts a channel in Gaelic (BBC Alba) Which is available on IPlayer and may be useful to you.

The Island of Islay has a lot of Gaelic speakers and a small Gaelic college. Skye has the same. Many people on the islands of South and North Uist, Barra, Lewis and Harris speak Gaelic and quite a lot of them have Gaelic as their first language. Small islands connected by little ferries, or by causeways or bridges, to the other islands, often have a bigger concentration of Gaelic Speakers. Scalpay, Berneray and Eriskay are good examples. Less people, by far, on the mainland, still "have the Gaelic". I hope that helps,
