The National Trust for Scotland has announced that the Hugh Miller Museum and Birthplace Cottage will remain open. The NTS chief executive Kate Mavor has said, "Fortunately through a creative and flexible approach to staffing we have been able to find a solution which enables the Hugh Miller Museum to remain open and continue to bring the story of one of Scotland's most pre-eminent geologists to life for visitors."

Unfortunately, the "flexible approach to staffing" is at the expense of Martin Gostwick's full-time position as manager. Local volunteers with the assistance of part-time senior visitor assistant Zooulla Spirou will run the museum in future. Full story in the Inverness Courier
The museum is open Sundays to Wednesdays from 1.00pm to 5.00pm.
