Dr. Kennedy was pastor of Dingwall Free Church congregation from 1844 until his death in 1884 at the age of 65. He was a renowned and powerful preacher whose services were in much demand by congregations throughout the Highlands and in other parts of Scotland.

He was also a staunch defender of the Reformed Faith who was, as his friend C.H. Spurgeon described him, 'true as steel and firm as a rock'.

Among his dozen or so publications his Apostle of the North and The Days of the Fathers in Ross-shire have ensured an honoured place for him among the chroniclers of the religious history and biography of the Highlands of Scotland.
