Following a policy decision of reversion to native Gaelic influences, Scottish Highlanders are more favoured. The Gaelicisation strengthens the rough highland soldiers with weapons and armour forged the traditional scottish way. Furthermore it allows for a cheaper training of Highlanders but forbids the living after the rules of the Chivalric Orders.

Gaelicisation is the act or process of making something Gaelic, or gaining characteristics of the Gaels. The Gaels are an ethno-linguistic group who are traditionally viewed as having spread from Ireland to Scotland and the Isle of Man. "Gaelic" as a linguistic term, refers to the Gaelic language, but can also refer to the transmission of any other Gaelic cultural feature such as social norms and customs, music, sport etc. Historically, Gaelicisation was a "natural" process, and was the famous fate of the Picts, many of the Hiberno-Normans and Scoto-Normans, and perhaps most famously of all, the people who became known as the Norse-Gaels.
