Fossil hunter, folklorist, man of faith, stonemason, geologist, editor, writer and social justice campaigner – Hugh Miller was one of the great Scots of the 19th century. The museum interpreting his life and work is located in the Georgian ‘Miller House’ in Church Street. Hugh Miller rose from humble beginnings in Cromarty as a journeyman stonemason, to international renown. The museum includes interactive displays, fossils you can handle and the Miller’s Yard ‘Garden of Wonders’. The iconic Birthplace Cottage next door was built around 1698 and is the last remaining thatched cottage in Cromarty. It too has a lovely courtyard and gardens.
