Hugh Miller

An extraordinary figure, Hugh Miller (1802-1856) was born in Cromarty, where he originally worked as a Stonemason. He would then go on to become a scientist, journalist, lecturer and defender of Christianity against the Evolusionists. By the time of his tragic suicide in 1856, Miller's pioneering work in the field of Geology had secured his place as one of the foremost thinkers of his time, while his writing - on subjects as diverse as poetry, folklore, education, history and religion - had made him one of the best known Victorian literary figures, admired by the likes of Thomas Carlyle, Charles Dickens and John Ruskin.
