B’ creag-eòlaiche ainmeil a bha ann an Hugh Miller (no Uisdean Mac a’ Mhuilleir sa Ghàidhlig), 1802–1856. Bha e ainmeil cuideachd mar bhall den Eaglais Shaor agus mar sgrìobhadair. Rugadh e ann an Cromba san Eilean Dubh air 10 an Dàmhair 1902, agus bhàsaich e ann am Portobello air 24 an Dùbhlachd 1856.

Ged nach robh Gàidhlig aig Hugh Miller, oir b’ e Albais a bha aig muinntir bhaile Chrombaidh, cha robh am baile ach beagan mhìltean bho sgìre far an robh Gàidhlig aig an t-sluagh aig an àm, agus sgrìobh e an cunntas seo de ùrnaigh feasgair ann an sgeul a bheatha sa leabhar My Schools and Schoolmasters:

“...The concluding evening prayer was one of great solemnity and unction. I was unacquainted with the language in which it was couched; but it was impossible to avoid being struck, notwithstanding, with its wrestling earnestness and fervour. The man who poured it forth evidently believed there was an unseen ear open to it, and an all-seeing presence in the place, before whom every secret thought lay exposed. The entire scene was a deeply impressive one”
