Outlander Episode 113 – The Watch – The Gàidhlig Bits I Could Decipher

I think I like this episode more every time I watch it. And even though there’s not Gaelic in them, I think the scenes between Jenny and Claire are my favorites.  That being said, here is the Gaelic I could translate. Note that I’m still waiting on final confirmation for the final thing that Jamie says right before the ambush.

The Watch arrives

5:46 MacQuarrie to Ian for sword

Taing dhut – Thank you

Dinner

8:36 Jamie to MacQuarrie saying where he’s from.

Na h-Innse Gall – The Western (foreign) Isles

10:33 MacQuarrie toasting

Slàinte mhath – good health

Shoeing the horse

12:14 Jamie to Rabby

A bhalaic – lad

     Rabbie answering

Gun dàil – without delay

Fire in the wagon

Most of this is under Jamie’s breath and I can’t make it out. If anyone else can, leave me a comment.

Horrocks arrival

15:11 Jamie to the dogs

Ist -quiet (several people pointed this out and I think they’re right.)

Fixing the wagon

26:40 Jamie exclaims

Ifrinn – Hell!

Ambush

Jamie yelling

Still awaiting confirmation on this one. Will update the post when I have it.

Outlander Episode 111 – The Devil’s Mark – The Gàidhlig Bits I Could Decipher

Well, I think this just may be my favorite episode so far, and I promise I don’t say that lightly. The witch trial sequence and Claire’s decision at the stones is one of my very favorite parts of the book and I was so thrilled to see the adaptation live up to it. :-)

As for the Gaelic, again there wasn’t a whole lot of it this week. I’m really hoping that we will get more once the scene shifts to Lallybroch next week. I also apologize for taking a bit longer than normal to get this week’s blog post out but I had to consult with the master to get an accurate translation of the one Gaelic phrase in the episode that everyone wanted to know. ;-)

Jamie comforting Claire after her confession

46:23 Jamie as he holds Claire

Nach gabh u do shocair, a ghràidh – Won’t you take it easy, dear.

47:18 Jamie calls Claire “dear” again

a ghràidh – dear

 Jamie and Claire by the campfire

49:47 Jamie uses his favorite Gaelic endearment

mo nighean donn – My brown-haired lass

Outlander Episode 109: The Reckoning – The Gàidhlig Bits I Could Decipher

Congratulations Outlanders! Our long international nightmare, otherwise known as #Droughtlander, is over (for most of us) and we have survived! The Gàidhlig in this episode, while not plentiful, should prove as a nice refresher for a couple of words and phrases we learned from the first half of the Outlander season.

Return from rescuing Claire

19:39  Rupert to Dougal and the others at the inn

 Ciamar a tha sibh! – Greeting: How are you (plural)!

     Angus to the crowd

Tulach Ard! – MacKenzie war cry

Think again

36:14  Jamie’s response to Claire refusing the bed

 OK. I’ve been corrected here. I thought he was saying ‘Glè mhath. – Very well’ but I’ve gone back and listened again and think Mhairi and Michelle are right. Jamie is actually saying oidhche mhath – Good night.

Oidhche mhath – Good night.

 Also, LearnGaelic retweeted their 20 words post centered around Outlander. It’s a nice refresher with some sound files for names, etc.

Like I said at the start, the Gàidhlig this week wasn’t bountiful, but here’s to looking for more in the weeks to come!

A Day at the Folk Museum starring Miss Candida N. – Scotland Day 14

Candida and I were just a little bummed this morning to be packing up to leave Pitlochry. It’s been such a wonderful home base for our explorations. Thanks again, Susan! I was also just a bit worried looking at all my packages and parcels about getting all the stuff I’ve bought into my suitcases for the trip home. But, like Scarlett, I’ll think about that tomorrow.

We did finally get our stuff loaded though and headed north for the final time. This time our destination was the Highland Folk Museum at Newtonmore.  Arriving, we checked in at Reception. There is no charge for the Highland Folk Museum, just donations requested to help maintain it, and the friendly person at reception was happy to orient us to the mile-long site. Weather being extremely Scottish at the moment, Candida and I chose to head straight for the 1700’s replica township on site. (Only a 5 minute walk we were promised. I’ve been to Scotland before, so I knew better. Apparently, whoever sets these times walks much fast than I do!) Continue reading

Lights, Camera, Outlander! – Scotland Day 12

The day started bright and early this morning as we had an action packed day planned. I probably owe Candida the first shower tomorrow as I apparently used more than my half of the hot water. Oops. After a quick breakfast, we hit the A9 south towards Stirling where we were meeting one of the Outlander UK girls at our first Outlander filming location of the day.  We arrived right on schedule and found our compatriot with no problems. She led us on a short hike up the hill to a very familiar location to those who have either seen episode 105 – Rent or keep up with Matt B. Roberts’ pictures of the Day.

Next up, we headed over to Culross. Culross is the village used by the Outlander team for the fictional Crainesmuir as well as some of the outdoor garden scenes at Castle Leoch. The Palace itself was closed but we were able to explore the gardens to our heart’s content. We then ventured up cobblestone streets to the house that was used for Geillis and Arthur Duncan’s house. It has scaffolding because they are still in the process of returning the house to its pre-filming color. Continue reading
