In 1951 the Parish of Coull was linked, and in 1975 united, with Tarland Parish. This Parish of Coull and Tarland was then united with the Parish of Logie Coldstone then with the Parish of Migvie in 1984 to become the present widespread Parish of Cromar.
Cromar Parish is served by two places of worship, the main building being St. Moluag's Church in Tarland where Sunday morning worship is currently held at 10am. Coull Kirk is retained as a place of worship for the summer months when the weather is warmer and the days are longer, the reason being the building is not supplied from the electrical mains. The interior of Coull Kirk is lit by oil and gas lamps which give the building little more than a warm glow! During the summer evening services are held and for one Sunday in the year the congregation will gather to worship at Coull instead of St Moluag's Church.

Here is the oak tablet below the memorial window.

William James Birse.
It is not Gordon Highlanders, but Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders. The press item above is incorrect.



The window and tablet below can be seen here:

I've tried to get that message across on the Forum many times. Same true for headstones.
