Note the sign for the benefit of those visitors that understand Gaelic but not English - all none of them! The recent deliberate (and tax-payer funded) proliferation of Gaelic (a minority "traditional" language that less than 0.1% of the British population speak) in the public domain is another of the many deleterious consequences of devolution. Can anyone explain why Gaelic language signs are needed at Dunoon, the supermarket in Brodick or, indeed, Edinburgh Waverley Station? It's yet another example of the disproportionate influence that vociferous minority groups, in this case the Gaelic lobby, have over public policy.
