  • £5.00

Relive the adventures of Angus Og and the residents of Drambeg through a new series of booklets featuring digitally reproduced copies of the original cartoon drawings by Ewen Bain. Each booklet contains one original Angus Og story from the Ewen Bain Angus Og Collection held at Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre.

Angus Og and the Gaelic was originally published in 1973. The Laird's wife decides to learn Gaelic so she can read the new Gaelic street signs. Rev McSonachan tries teaching her but he is too boring and focuses on obscure grammar. Angus offers to teach her and offers her a dram to begin the lesson but accidentally spills the whisky on a Gaelic Dictionary and it becomes an Instant Gaelic Potion. Angus sets up a Gaelic College but when Granny McBrochan realises he is using her Gaelic Dictionary that she put in the jumble sale by mistake she puts the 'fluence on Angus's Instant Gaelic with hilarious results. The perfect story for anyone with an interest in Gaelic!
