We were staying in Cromarty which turned out to be a lovely little place - and we were keen to see the Hugh Miller museum which is owned by NT for Scotland. It is well kept and a visit is highly recommended.

Small SNT property. Didn't know much about Hugh Miller so found it quite interesting. The "garden" was a bit of a let down - a few strides and that's it. Good to while away an hour or so.

Hugh Miller was an amazing man, a truly Renaissance man. This museum examines his work in geology and paleontology. With lots of displays and things you can touch. A short, tragic life of a genius. A man who was ahead of his time.

Spend the day enjoying everything Cromarty has to offer - Hugh Miller is not well-known outside of Scotland yet was a contemporary of Charles Darwin and an most unusual and interesting character
