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


Mike Harding was born in Crumpsall, Manchester, in 1944, into a working class Irish Catholic family. His writing has ranged from comedy to church architecture, from poetry to playwriting, from short stories to novels and, unsurprisingly, from fell-walking to a manual for fishermen on how to tie flies, with many of the books illustrated with his own photographs. Mike has presented the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards since 2000, and between 1997 and 2012 he presented the weekly folk and roots programme The Mike Harding Show. He now has his own highly popular internet radio show.
