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 had a fabulous stay The Old Manse, the place itself is lovely and very clean, with great attention to detail and beautiful gardens. Absolutely loved the decor and the room we stayed in was so spacious. The breakfast was amazing with a wide variety and not to mention the delicious cakes. Neale & Linda were great hosts offering advice on places to visit even down to coffee shops along the way, which we wouldn't have found on our own! They even gave us some cake to takeaway with us on our journey, which was very thoughtful. We would highly recommend The Old Manse and would definitely stay there again. A delightful experience with a personal touch
