I'm learning Scottish Gaelic but without anyone to talk to and practice with it's tricky. Are there any free sites where I can chat to people in Scottish Gaelic to improve?
NOTE: Free is very preferable if not necessary.

italki is a resource that lists a few people who are in fluent in Scottish Gaelic. MyLanguageExchange is another online tool to help you connect with other Gaelic learners, and I found more than 20 users on that website learning Gaelic as well. You can also trying using this tool, Conversation Exchange, to find learners.
You're not going to find a Scottish Gaelic language exchange partner, at least not if your native language is English. Take the time to master reading and listening first, then make a point to visit the Gaelic-speaking areas of Scotland. You can find lots of literature and listening materials online.
