STRATHY, lately a quoad sacra parish, in the parish of Farr, county of Sutherland, 9 miles (E. by N.) from the church of Farr; containing 880 inhabitants. This district was formed of the eastern part of the parish, extending to the north coast of the county, and is of considerable length. It is watered by the river Strathy, a stream issuing from Loch Strathy, and which, after a course of about fifteen miles, falls into a bay of the same name, at the head of which is the village: the promontory of Strathy point forms the western shore of the bay. The coast road from Thurso to the Kyle of Tongue runs through the village, of which the population are chiefly fishermen. The ecclesiastical affairs are under the superintendence of the presbytery of Tongue and synod of Sutherland and Caithness, and the patronage is in the Crown: the stipend of the minister is £120. The church, situated in the village, and built in 1826, affords accommodation to about 350 persons. There is a school, the master of which has a salary of £25, with about £4 in lieu of fees.
