Both Scottish Gaelic and Manx Gaelic had their origins in Irish Gaelic. Irish Gaelic speakers settled in what is now Argyll at some point in the period 300-600 AD. As a Scottish Gaelic learner, I can read Irish quite easily but I believe the pronunciation is further removed from the Irish. I …do not know about Manx. So in summary, the written language is really quite similar but I believe the spoken language is less mutually intelligible among speakers.
