How to say “I love you” in Scottish Gaelic.

This is one of the most requested phrases that I receive, and I think it’s safe to say that we all love, love.

It’s also one of those fabulous phrases that many of us like to know in many different languages. Maybe similar to the also very popular phrase “2 beers, please.”.

The most commonly used Scottish Gaelic phrase is “Tha gaol agam ort,” which loosely translates to “I have love at me on you”.

Now, the way in which you pronounce the word “gaol” is going to come down to dialect. Neither version is “wrong,”  and I would just say, go with whichever feels natural to you!
I love you – “Tha gaol agam ort” – (Ha gihl ackam orsht) or (Ha ghoul ackam orsht).
