We introduce here the project we know as "ELIZA'S PATH." It is addressed both to visitors to the St Regulus Burial Ground and this website. Eliza's Path is not its official name, but the one we, The Friends of Hugh Miller, have given to the project, which we have initiated and paid for with the support of generous donations because of its special significance to Hugh Miller and his family.
Eliza's Path leads to the grave of Hugh and Lydia Miller's first born child, Eliza, who died in infancy. Some of Miller's ancestors, including his great grand-farther John Feddes, are buried beside her
The graveyard also contains a burial vault of Clan Urquhart chiefs below the remnants of a medieval chapel. It is probably
Cromarty's single richest repository of folklore.
