Hugh Macmillan

Hugh Macmillan (1833-1903) was a minister in the Free Church of Scotland.

First ordained at Kirkmichael in Perthshire in 1859, Macmillan was called to Free St Peter's in 1864. He established a reputation as an able preacher and published a number of books, one of the best known being Bible teachings in Nature. His other interests were botany and travel and he spent some time in Rome as Free Church Deputy there.

Macmillan was a member of the Glasgow School Board. In 1878 he moved on to the West Church, Greenock, where he remained until his death in 1903. He was Moderator of the Free Church General Assembly in 1897.
