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.

'There was another Highlander who resided near Kessock, who had vowed, immediately after the battle of Preston, that he would neither cut nor comb the hair of his head until Charles Stuart was placed on the throne of his ancestors. And he religiously observed his vow. My grandfather saw him twenty years after the battle. He was then a strange, grotesque-looking thing, not very unlike a huge cabbage set a-walking; for his hair stuck out nearly a foot on each side of his head, and was matted into a kind of felt. But truce with such stories! Fifty years ago they formed an endless series; but they have now nearly all passed away, or only live, if I may so express myself, in those echoes of the departed generations which still faintly reverberate among the quieter recesses of the present. Of all the people who witnessed the smoke of Culloden from the hill of Cromarty I remember only three.'

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.
