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.

'The Bay of Cromarty was deemed one of the finest in the world at a time when the world was very little known; and modern discovery has done nothing to lower its standing or character.

The foreground is occupied by a gigantic wall of brown precipices, beetling for many miles over the edge of the Firth, and crested by dark thickets of furze and pine. A multitude of shapeless crags lie scattered along the base, and we hear the noise of the waves breaking against them, and see the reflected gleam of the foam flashing at intervals into the darker recesses of the rock The waters of the bay find entrance, as described by the historian, through a natural postern scooped out of the middle of this immense wall. The huge projection of cliff on either hand, with their alternate masses of light and shadow, remind us of the out-jets and buttresses of an ancient fortress; and the two Sutors, towering over the opening, of turrets built to command a gateway. The scenery within is of a softer and more gentle character. We see hanging woods, sloping promontories, a little quiet town, and an undulating line of blue mountains, swelling as they retire into a bolder outline and a loftier altitude, until they terminate, some twenty miles away, in the snow-streaked, cloud-capped Ben Wyvis.'

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.
