Fyrish Monument

Posted on

The Fyrish Monument stands on Fyrish Hill overlooking the Cromarty Firth with views at the back to Ben Wyvis. The monument was built in 1782 by order of Sir Hector Munro after his return from service in India. The construction provided much needed work for the local labourers and craftsman. Its models on the Gates of Negapatam a port a Madras.

There is a car park from where you can start the walk to the top which will take about two hours round trip, dependent on fitness! However you are rewarded with a great view from the top. 

We stayed at the Old Manse for one night when riding the NC500 by motorcycle. It was excellent from beginning to end. A very lovely welcome from Neale and Linda who made us a cup of tea as soon as we got there. We sat and had a chat in the guest lounge. The house is stunning. Attention to detail is the order of the day. You will want for nothing. Breakfast was wonderful. You won't find paper napkins or foil wrapped butter here, everything is done properly. Linda even packed us a couple of her home made cheese scones for later in the day and they were delicious. I have rated this B&B as mid-range price but it is luxury accommodation
