The Gaelic Society of Inverness was established in 1871 for the specific purpose of "cultivating the language, poetry and music of the Scottish Highlands and generally furthering the interests of the Gaelic-speaking people". It has continued this work for over 130 years.
Having survived some difficult periods, the Society has undergone a notable revival in recent years, and the present membership roll of about 520 is probably higher than at any time since the 1920s. Whilst the majority of members are in the north of Scotland, it has members all over the world including Europe, North America, Japan and Australia.
