Coincidence, I remember taking part in a ''know your Cromarty'' as part of a local history lesson, and
one of the questions was:- How many books are below the hand of Hugh Miller?....answer 7., and the listed number of this picture is No. 7. The Teacher at the time was Miss Betty Patience, who was normally
our French teacher, but getting close to the Summer hols., we got an easy time.

From the archives of the Inverness Courier - 30th June 1859.

"The statue of the lamented Miller, by Mr Handyside Ritchie of Edinburge, has arrived here in safety by the Dundalk steamer. The statue is in two pieces, weighing together about three tons. Dr Macdonald having sent three of his powerful horses, the heavier part of the statue has been carried to the foot of the doric pillar designed to receive it. Those who had peeped through the canvass and seen the features pronounce the likeness to be excellent."
