Multilingual guides are sought after for the summer season in the Outer Hebrides. Thousands of tourists are expected to descend on the Western Isles of Scotland in the next couple of months, and demand exceeds the 27 existing multilingual tour guides.
Joan Morrison, of the Western Isles Tour Guide Association, said:
“We are pretty desperate and really need people fluent in Finnish, Swedish, Spanish or Italian, and willing to undergo training. We need people as soon as possible within the next couple of weeks so we can start training.”
Gaelic remains the main language spoken by inhabitants of the islands.
