Join Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Museum for an immersive walking tour exploring Cromarty’s links to slavery and colonialism.
Self-taught geologist, folklorist and social justice campaigner – Hugh Miller was one of the great Scots of the 19th century. Taking inspiration from Miller’s life and work, Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Museum will host a series of immersive walking tours around Cromarty this summer. Participants will be invited to walk in the footsteps of the town’s inhabitants from earlier ages and explore how life in this part of Scotland has changed over the centuries.
This tour will focus on Cromarty’s links to slavery and colonialism.
Looking back at life in the Victorian Highlands, the tour will explore stories about trade and travel, the migration of people, and movement of ideas, and how this shaped the region.
Two further walking tours will run from April to October 2022: ‘Women’s lives in Cromarty’ and ‘Cromarty’s links to war times’.
All tours will start at Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Museum. Information and booking details will be available on the National Trust for Scotland’s website soon.
Tickets are available to purchase from the front desk at Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Museum.
