Since questions come up about it from time to time, I'm creating this thread for links to sites which offer pronunciation guides for Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig). This thread will be locked, but will have additional links/resources added as appropriate. There will also be a "stickied" thread where people can make additional suggestions for resources to be added here.

For a basic resource for Gaelic pronunciation, here's a link to the Akerbeltz site which has links to various pages where you can see the pronunciation of various consonant and vowel combinations spelled out in the international phonetic alphabet (IPA), and also listen to them being pronounced. You can download all of the files available there as well, for future use. Look at the bottom of the page that the link takes you to to see the choices in small print there.

This site also offers an opportunity to hear Gaelic spoken, with various songs and readings from around Scotland:
