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. 

Neale and Linda are fantastic. They are great hosts who took time to help me with lots of local info for my Scottish roadtrip. I decided to stay an extra night so I could explore the local area before moving on. The b&b is stunning and has a very homely feeling. I would definately stay again and have already recommended this place to my friends and family
