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



The stanes o this auld dyke are free.

Yet each depends upon the ither.

It is the dyker's skill that binds them.

His een provided the mortar.

Run yer haun alang its rough side.

Feel hou each boulder plays its pairt.

Feel its simple strength, abune aa.

Feel the years pulsin through its heirt.
