Both Miller House, a handsome Georgian-period villa, and the iconic seventeenth-century thatched birthplace cottage are closely connected with the renowned church reformer and geologist, Hugh Miller (1802–1856). Beautiful small gardens lie behind both buildings, complete with giant ‘fossils’, ancient tree ferns and an original sundial carved by Hugh Miller. Largely self-taught, Miller came to folklore, history and geology without the preconceived ideas of a formal higher education. Although now largely forgotten, he and his writings cast a huge shadow over nineteenth-century Edinburgh, so much so that when he died his funeral brought that great city to a standstill.
