The Reverend John Murray, Brora

Born in Stornoway in 1841, John Murray completed his theological studies at New College in Edinburgh. He was ordained in 1869 at the Free Church at Clyne near Brora in Sutherland.

The Reverend was deeply interested in local issues including the plight of the crofters and it was no surprise when he was appointed convener of the first Sutherland County Council. He proved to be a capable convener and an impartial chairman.
