      Rev. Andrew Munro was minister of Thurso and proprietor of Coul.

      Andrew studied for the Church at King's College and the University of Aberdeen, where he graduated with an M.A. degree in 1650. He was ordained and admitted as minister of Thurso on 4 Nov 1655. He was deposed in 1681 for refusing to take the Test Oath, but was reinstated by Act of Parliament on 25 Apr 1690.

      In 1659, Andrew contracted to marry Christina, daughter of Mr. John Munro, minister of Alness and on 10 Jul 1662, the contract was registered in the Books of the Sheriffdom of Ross. However, the marriage did not take place because of "the sudden death of the lady or some other important cause." Instead, Andrew married Christian, daughter of John Munro of Culcraggie in the same year.
