leaderExplore our journey, which celebrated the life and achievements of a great Scot, a great scientist and a remarkable observer of the social history of the time. Hugh Miller, of Cromarty, recorded his voyage of discovery on the Betsey, around the Inner Hebrides, in the summer of 1844. Our journey recreated this 170 years later with a crew of geologists, writers, musicians, geographers and other talented people.
