I wouldn't trust a straight word-to-word translation.  While my
knowledge of Scots-Gaelic is limited to a little about names, I
believe that it's one of those languages that is pretty extensively
inflected, lenited, or otherwise tortured to change it depending on
part of speech.  I'd ask someone familiar with it.
