'Gaelic choral singing has a long and deeply-embedded tradition on Islay. Until relatively recently most of the Islay villages or areas of the island would each have had their own choir. Còisir Ghàidhlig Ìle (Islay Gaelic Choir) was formed in 2005 as the successor to the Port Ellen Gaelic Choir which was the last remaining village choir on the island. Còisir Ghàidhlig Ìle is now Islay’s sole Gaelic choir representing the entire island. Members are drawn from all parts of the island and we welcome all comers – regardless of their music or Gaelic abilities.'

'Còisir Ghàidhlig an Eilein Mhuilich, the Isle of Mull Gaelic Choir, was founded in the spring of 1978, solely to compete at that year's mod when it was realised that Mull needed more representation at the National Mod ... "just for that year" ... Needless to say, it was agreed at the first Annual General Meeting that the Choir should remain in existence, and it has gone from strength to strength ...'

‘Comunn Ciuil an Òbain (Oban Gaelic Musical Association) is the umbrella organisation of which Còisir Ghàidhlig an Òbain (Oban Gaelic Choir) is part. We have associate members who form Càirdean Còisir Ghàidhlig an Òbain (Friends of Oban Gaelic Choir) and they are non-singing supporters who help raise funds and promote the Choir, one of the oldest Gaelic Choirs in Scotland. We meet weekly, usually on Monday evenings, from 7.30-9.30. in Oban. Often, we have other practices, depending on events and performances. We take every opportunity to sing and attend local Mòds as well as the National Mòd when it’s practical but we sing primarily for enjoyment and the fun and friendship we have together.’

Stirling Gaelic Choir was founded in 1948 and might more realistically be called the Central Scotland Gaelic Choir, as its 40 plus membership travel to rehearsals from Balfron to Glenrothes, Bonnybridge to Crieff and all parts in between ... Whether you are a fluent Gaelic speaker, or a complete beginner with an interest in learning a bit about the language, or whether you just enjoy Gaelic music and culture, we will welcome you and find a place for you. You do not need to be a Gaelic speaker; we have a tutor who helps us to learn the words of our songs ... The choir welcomes new members from all cultures, creeds, sexual and gender orientation. The rehearsal premises are disabled accessible. Members can apply for fee reduction or for financial support for participation in competition events if costs would otherwise exclude them.’
