Self-taught geologist, folklorist and social justice campaigner – Hugh Miller was one of the great Scots of the 19th century. Taking inspiration from Miller’s life and work, Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Museum will host a series of immersive walking tours around Cromarty this summer. Participants will be invited to walk in the footsteps of the town’s inhabitants from earlier ages and explore how life in this part of Scotland has changed over the centuries.

This tour looks at the town’s 20th century links to engagement, warfare and defence in the First and Second World Wars, when Cromarty Firth was a focus of military activity.

Two further walking tours will run from April to October 2022: ‘Women’s lives in Cromarty’ and ‘Cromarty’s links to slavery and colonialism’.

All tours will start at Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Museum. Information and booking details will be available on the National Trust for Scotland’s website soon.
