Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o 'Scenes and Legends of the North of Scotland' le Hugh Miller, foillsichte an toiseach an 1835. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le sgoilear o Acadamaidh na Cananaich.

'When a little fellow of about ten or twelve years of age, I was very much addicted to reading, but found it no easy matter to gratify the propensity; until, having made myself acquainted with some people in the neighbourhood who were possessed of a few volumes, I was permitted to ransack their shelves, to the no small annoyance of the bookworm and the spider. I read incessantly; and as the appetite for reading, like every other kind of appetite, becomes stronger the more it is indulged, I felt, when I had consumed the whole, a still keener craving than before. I was quite in the predicament of the shipwrecked sailor, who expends his last morsel on the open sea, and, like him too, I set myself to prey on my neighbours. Old grey headed men, and especially old women, became my books; persons whose minds, not having been preoccupied by that artificial kind of learning which is the result of education, had gradually filled, as they passed through life, with the knowledge of what was occurring around them, and with the information derived from people of a similar cast with themselves, who had been born half an age earlier. And it was not long before I at least thought I discovered that their narratives had only to be translated into the language of books, to render them as interesting as even the better kind of written stories.'

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.
