Linda NicLeòid

Linda is from North Uist, although she’s now been living in Glasgow for just as many years. Gaelic was her first language and through her childhood and teenage years in Uist she was always surrounded by the language, the songs, the stories, and the local culture. Linda graduated with a first-class honours degree in Gaelic in 2010 and then with an MPhil in Gaelic in 2011.

Today Linda works part-time as a presenter on CBeebies ALBA and the rest of her freelance work is divided between different projects. Linda has been Comhairle nan Leabhraichean’s Young Gaelic Reading Ambassador since 2016 and in October 2023 she was named An Comann Gàidhealach’s Gaelic Ambassador of the Year at the Royal National Mod in Paisley.

This is Linda’s first time teaching at Ceòlas and she’s delighted to be part of such a renowned and exciting week of Gaelic, music and culture.
