Gaelic is one of the two branches of the Celtic language. It is part of the Q-Celtic branch. This language is also referred to as the Goidelic language. The language formed a dialect that went from Ireland to the Isle of Man and then North of Scotland. There are three kinds of Gaelic spoken. The sections are Irish, Scottish Gaelic, and Manx. The language used to be restricted to Ireland and the possibly to the west coast of Scotland.

Gaelic is from the 6th century and was brought to Scotland by settlers who arrived there. This is the oldest written language. The language evolved from what was considered Primitive Irish to Old Irish, Middle Irish, and then Classic Gaelic. Classic Gaelic was the language until the 18th century and used in literary writing in Ireland and Scotland.
