Looks like they spoke (once) a language close to Welsh, many centuries ago.
Now I dunno if that language (long dead) was replaced by Gaelic and then by Scots and English, or directly by Scots and English...
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.
Gaelic however has been spoken in Dunbarton for ages, and the name is indeed Gaelic to begin with, from Dùn Breatainn.
That's very inetresting,that there could be a Welsh or French connection,i thought it was just a case of Gaelic or not Gaelic,
