  • There was certainly more to this than I expected. I learnt much about Hugh Millers life, success's and tragedies. The collections of the fossils he collected locally were very interesting. It was also intriguing to see how a 17th century Scottish house was built and the modernisations made. Well worth the visit.
  • Despite the sign outside saying that it is open some days each week in October, it is closed completely from 15 October until Spring.
  • Very interesting museum about the fascinating life of Hugh Miller. Lots to see. Lovely garden too. If you holiday in the NTS owned Paye House next door (which I can't recommend highly enough), then you get free entry to the museum. We also took a walk to Eathie Beach after visiting the museum to see the fossils and saw pine martens on our way there!
