Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo on leabhar fèin-eachdraidheil aig Ùisdean Mac a' Mhuilleir (Hugh Miller) 'My Schools and Schoolmasters', foillsichte an toiseach an 1854. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le Tormod Newton.

'How exquisitely the sun sets in a clear, calm, summer evening over the blue Hebrides! Within less than a mile of our barrack, there rose a tall hill, whose bold summit commanded all the Western Isles, from Sleat in Skye, to the Butt of the Lewis. To the south lay the trap islands; to the north and west, the gneiss ones. They formed, however, seen from this hill, one great group, which, just as the sun had sunk, and sea and sky were so equally bathed in gold as to exhibit on the horizon no dividing line, seemed in their transparent purple - darker or lighter according to the distance - a group of lovely clouds, that, though moveless in the calm, the first light breeze might sweep away. Even the flat promontories of sandstone, which like outstretched arms, enclosed the outer reaches of the foreground - promontories edged with low red cliffs, and covered with brown heath - used to borrow at these times, from the soft yellow beam, a beauty not their own.'

Rugadh is thogadh Ùisdean Mac a' Mhuilleir (Hugh Miller) ann an Cromba. Aig aois 16 chaidh e na phreantas aig clachair, dreuchd a lean e fad 17 bliadhna às dèidh sin. Dh'fhàs an ùidh aige ann am fosailean agus bhiodh e a' rannsachadh chumaidhean-tìre an Eilein Duibh, a' leughadh gu farsainn, gus am b' e fear de na h-eòlaichean a b' ainmeile air saidheansan ùra eòlas-sheann-chnàimhean agus eòlas-chreagan. Sgrìobh e cuideachd artaigil an siud 's an seo don 'Inverness Courier'.

Thàinig Ùisdean a bhith gu dubh an sàs ann am poilitigs na h-eaglaise agus 's e am prìomh neach-naidheachd air Briseadh na h-Eaglaise, na fhear-deasachaidh air 'The Witness' o 1835 gu àm a bhàis. Mharbh e e fhèin le gunna na dhachaigh ann am Portobello ann an 1859 ann an suidheachadh neo-chinnteach, le cuid ag ràdh gu robh rudan ag obair air, coltach ri tinneas eanchainne, fìor sgìths, lionn-dubh agus 's dòcha neo-chomas a bhith a' freagairt a shaidheans ri a chreideamhan cràbhach.

Tha an taigh-còmhnaidh beag ann an Cromba far an d' rugadh e (Hugh Miller's Cottage), an-diugh fo chùram Urras Nàiseanta na h-Alba agus tha taigh-tasgaidh ann de a bheatha agus de obair.
