Hugh Miller Museum and Birthplace Cottage

Location: Church Street, Inverness

Daily 12pm-7pm


The old village of Cromarty stands on the eastern tip of the Black Isle in northern Scotland. The pretty cottages of this acclaimed waterside village are perfect for a wander and the shoreline here is a famous spot for dolphin spotting. The prime attraction of Cromarty itself is the Hugh Miller Museum and Birthplace Cottage. The idyllic whitewashed and thatched cottage is the birthplace of Hugh Miller, a prominent 19th-century scholar, writer and geologist. Alongside is an elegant Georgian villa, which houses a museum about his life. Both are set in attractive gardens and are in the hands of the National Trust for Scotland.
