Continuing on the shoreline walk, you will pass round the bay in which Hugh Miller made his famous discoveries of Devonian era fossil fish, of which you will have seen some specimens in Miller House. They formed the basis for his most renowned geological work, The Old Red Sandstone. Beside the woodland “100 Stairs” walk leading to the cliff-top, are the settings of his wild boyhood adventures so rivetingly recalled in some 100 pages of his autobiography, My Schools and Schoolmasters, (Chapters II to VII). They also furnished him with another rich source of legends. The spectacular panoramic views of the Moray Firth, the Fearn peninsula to the north, and the mountains of Ross to the west can be admired from a cliff-top viewpoint.
