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. 

From the moment we arrived I felt happy. Linda and Neale made us feel at home and comfortable. They made us a tea on our arrival and we sat and chatted. The house is lovely. The rooms were very comfortable and stocked with tea and fresh milk. Breakfast was delicious. Fresh fruit, bread, homemade cakes, jam and a full breakfast for those who desired it. I am thinking about our next visit already
