Summary
COI synopsis: According to this year’s travel guides a new wave of hoteliers is making a tremendous impact on British tourism. These hoteliers are "amateurs", who have come from other professions as diverse as acting and accountancy. Maggie Palmer visits the Isle of Eriska Hotel, in a remote part of the west of Scotland, to meet an interesting example! He is Robin Buchanan-Smith, who is both hotelier and Scottish Presbyterian minister. To Maggie’s inevitable question, he shows us that he sees nothing surprising in his adopting his new profession, since running a hotel is merely another way of serving his fellow man.
Researcher Comments
The story also features Robin’s wife Sheena who is in charge of the hotel’s kitchen. NB: Information drawn from the Australian version
