Hugh Miller Medal

Cromarty Courthouse

This medal gives us an insight into the interests and schooldays of George Innes, a Cromarty resident who went on to pursue a long career in education and civic affairs. It was awarded at Cromarty School for an essay on geology in 1899 and named after renowned geologist and Cromarty resident Hugh Miller (1802 – 1856). 

Innes went on to receive the Dux medal the following year. That was traditionally awarded annually to the pupil who is top of the school year.  

In 1901, he entered the University of Edinburgh to read education and law. It’s known that he died in Elgin in 1970.
