Excitement builds as The Sheiling opens for its very last season. All's set for a great time with nothing to mar the horizon, despite Connie's retirement, Himself believing he's fully in charge, and Joan aching for the day she has nothing better to do than twiddle her thumbs in front of a blazing fire with a good book and contented cats. It doesn't turn out that way. BT sabotages the business. Connie is missed beyond measure and Himself has ideas well beyond his station while the cats do their utmost to destroy harmony by taking exception to certain guests. More laugh-out-loud tales from the pen of Joan Campbell, mixed with some sound advice about running, or staying in, a successful B&B.

Author Bio 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!
Back Cover Text Excitement builds as The Sheiling opens for its very last season...

... all's set for a great time with nothing to blot the horizon, despite Connie's retirement, Himself believing he's fully in charge, and Joan aching for the day she has nothing better to do than twiddle her thumbs in front of a blazing fire with a good book and contented cats.

It doesn't turn out that way. BT sabotages the business. Connie is missed beyond measure and Himself has ideas well beyond his station while the cats do their utmost to destroy the harmony by taking exception to certain guests, and enforcing their belief that children, expecially the grandchildren, should not be allowed over The Sheiling doorstep.

More laugh-out-loud tales from the pen of Joan Campbell mixed with some good advice for running, or staying at, a successful B&B.
Reviews A great anecdotal collection of stories that peek behind the smiling facade of the woman running the best B&B in the North. LESLEY RIDDOCH on Heads on Pillows
