There can be no doubt that in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries the language of Strathearn was Gaelic and that the Earls and other nobles must have used Gaelic to their people. ... Their servants, male and female, would be Gaelic-speaking. The rennarius, latinized from the G.[aelic] rannaire, 'divider', 'carver', perhaps 'head butler', appears several times as witness to the Earl's charters in the thirteenth century. The Earls of Strathearn were certainly brought up in a thoroughly Gaelic atmosphere. The same applies to Angus of that period.

Can someone please tell me how to pronounce "Auchleuchries"? And what it is exactly - a city, a village, something else?
Albeit the Scot in me is of the Western stock and the red of the Cairngorms, the heather and the Lewissian gneiss, the Viking in me was there when you uttered the first word of your leid.
it really looks like english but i am afraid of pronunciation
