It's me again! Am I correct in the Scottish Gaelic also uses the word "Samhain"? And if so, does the pronunciation differ significantly from Irish?

Sorry I left this so late...it's for an article that's going live tomorrow, and I want to make sure I'm not giving out misinformation!

it's spelt Samhainn and pronounced "sah-vehn" (double slender n at the end as in "binn"), "sa-bheinn", like :)
