In Reply to: URQUHART'S IN "FERINTOSH" Scotland by Ronnie Urquhart of 989

Hi, Ronnie,

You may know this one already. There is an Urquhart & Ferintosh Free Church on the west side of the Black Isle in Scotlant. I found the following information on it on page 38 of Elizabeth Beaton's "Ross & Cromarty, An Illustrated Architectural Guide":

Urquhart & Ferintosh Free Church, 1843; alterations, 1907, Thomas Munro, is a plain building with entry in base of later tower, capped by stumpt pinnacles and belfry. The church was established by Dr John Macdonald, the 'apostle of the north' and a moving force in the Disruption of 1843.

Comment: This is just from my recollections of readings and visit to the Cromarty Court House in May of this year, but I have seen somewhere a drawing of Dr. Macdonald preaching from an outdoor pulpit in this Ferintosh church region.

If any of this is helpful to you, let me know at I might have a bit more information.
