In Clyne Parish Church there is a stained glass window described in the Aberdeen Press and Journal of 15 February 1922 as

The design of the window shows a knight standing at the foot of the Cross, on which can be seen the crown of thorns hanging upon a nail placed where the head of our Saviour had been. At, the base are the inscriptions, supported by the Sutherland badge.

The inscription is-

In thankfulness to God for the memory of one who gave his life for King and country in the Great War 1914-19. / G. A. Sutherland. M.C., captain, Seaforth. Highlanders, 51st Division. / This window given by and a sister and brother 1921.
