Luath Press Ltd

Luath Press takes its name from Robert Burns, whose little collie Luath (Gael., swift or nimble) tripped up Jean Armour at a wedding and gave him the chance to speak to the woman who was to be his wife and the abiding love of his life. Burns called one of ' The Twa Dogs' Luath after Cuchullin's hunting dog in Ossian's Fingal. Luath Press was established in 1981 in the heart of Burns country, and is now based a few steps up the road from Burns' first lodgings on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.

Product Description


JOAN CAMPBELL and her husband, Hugh, now live at Stoneybraes, just up the hill from The Sheiling, the B&B business they ran for 40 years. Her son Neil with his partner, Katrina, and their children, Shane and Fallon, continue to live close by.

In 2011, Joan was awarded an MBE for her work in tourism. She continues working with the Federation of Small Businesses on their regional Committee, and sits on the board of the Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards. She recently stepped down from seven years of writing the popular column, Tourism Matters, in the Northern Times and has given up her work with Visit Scotland to move on to working with Cats Protection, insisting that cats will be easier to herd than people. Retirement for Joan still seems a long way off!
