Fiona Smith

Gaelic Language

Fiona lives in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, but her passion lies in the culture of the Scottish Highlands. She is a keen student of the history and the language. Fiona ran across Scottish Gaelic at the age of 14 and fell immediately and hopelessly in love. She studied it independently and then found Gaelic Online, the former Atlantic Gaelic Academy and the wonders of classes over Skype. Now a longtime Gaelic Online instructor, she passes her knowledge on, both online and in-person across North America. She is very knowledgeable about traditional Gàidhlig Storytelling, the Duine Mhath and myths. Her particular love is Gaelic song, naming her favourite type as “cheerful war songs.”
