The house is similar to many others you can visit on the highland and the geological exhibit is average at best. Visited with my national trust membership but would not have paid for this experience.

Fascinating exhibition covering Miller's activities in geology, theology and writing. He is not widely known but was an influential national figure in his day. The courtyard is a gem.

Couldn't agree with the 5 star reviews more. We knew about Hugh Miller before our visit and had decided to find out a bit more about him and his fossils before going to have a look on Eathie beach to see if we'd manage to find fossils too. A trip to that beach, easily accesible from the Eathie Road, complements the museum, but make sure you go at low tide when the limestone will be uncovered, as well as the sandstone. You could have a look on the foreshore just east of Cromatry on the way to South Souter as well, as it's marked as "fish beds" too, on maps he made.

This is another surprising National Trust property. Well worth taking a little side trip for. One more remarkable man (of which Scotland has many) but take the time to peruse his wife Lydia's diary too. It's a treasure.
As is the village of Cromarty with its quirky antique shop and tempting bakery.

The story of Miller's life and work is wonderfully presented with just the right amount of detail for non-experts like myself. The house and cottage are in excellent condition and the gardens are a delight. Nice staff, too.
