Ainmean-Àite na h-Alba

Ainmean-Àite na h-Alba, or Gaelic Placenames of Scotland, is a non-profit organisation that focuses on researching and recommending appropriate forms of Gaelic place-names for uses such as signage, maps and other published materials.

AÀA’s national database is a centralised resource for preserving and promoting Gaelic place-names and the evidence for the recommendations made. This database is an invaluable educational tool and a treasure trove for Scotland’s historical, environmental and linguistic heritage.

AÀA required an specialised, bilingual – Gaelic /English – website with a bespoke search engine for its ever growing database, as well as intergration of OS Map for accurate display and the added facility of search the map in English or Gaelic.

The organisation also needed an eCommerce facility, which we delivered through WooCommerce, and the ability to take donations online.
