Clan Urquhart hits the headlines!
The East Church has been getting press coverage for an event to be held there in mid-April.
As an earlier East Church news-piece revealed, on 15th and 16th April there will be a conference in Cromarty to celebrate 400 years since the birth of Sir Thomas Urquhart.
The conference will be discussing many aspects of Sir Thomas's life and work. He is famous in East Church history for his argument with the minister over the erection of a pew. He hadn't been consulted about it, and even worse, from his point-of-view the seat had been put up 'by a professed enemy to his House, who had plotted the ruine thereof'.
We are expecting more relaxed debate on this occasion!
