Free Church School
Lord and Lady Murray, who lived in Strachur Park from 1838 – 1862 allowed the Free Church people to use a barn in Clachan, for meetings. It was known as ‘Murray’s Barn’ and was immediately adjacent to Strachur Churchyard. In 1844 the Rev. William Lauder became the Free Church minister and after a public meeting in Murray’s Barn, Mr Lauder travelled to Edinburgh to petition for a Free Church School.
