Attitudes Towards the Gaelic Language

"Around half (51%) were in favour of the usage of Gaelic in Scotland. By comparison very few (9%) were against it, but a sizeable number (38%) had no opinion either way - suggesting a lack of engagement with this issue amongst a sizeable segment of the population. "

Statistics about attitudes to Gaelic have been thin on the ground in recent years, now the Scottish Government has published some research. More details of the survey here.
