A' dol a dhèanamh

going to do

We often say we are ‘going to’ do something when making plans. We do this in Gaelic using a’ dol a ‘going to’ followed by a verbal noun. This is the same structure we use to say we are a’ dol a dh’Alba ‘going to Scotland’.

Remember: the a causes lenition where possible and adds dh’ before a vowel.
