Walk through woodland and onto moorland to reach Fyrish Monument. A steady but steep walk up to the summit on a well marked path. Car park is too small, but it looks like this may be about to be enlarged. Fabulous views once out onto...More

On a clear day there is no better view in N of Scotland. From the top of Fyrish you via the whole of Cromarty Firth. Such a shame that the Port Authority want to transfer oil ship to ship which will pollute the whole bay...More

Lovely walk through a forest area. Views from the top are incredible. Car park is a good size and fairly easy walk even in winter.

I live locally and visit the hill regularly in Summer and Winter, walking, running and cycling. It offers a myriad of paths to explore, but my favourite is sitting at the top overlooking Evanton and the Cromarty Firth. Well worth a visit to locals and...More

Feel the sense of achievement. After a 3km uphill walk, tremendous views over the Cromarty firth. Go in summer, though

Once you leave the car park there is a gentle stroll up the hill to reach the Fyrish Monument. For older and unfit people the path up the hill will be challenging. At the top of Fyrish hill you will be able to feast your...More

We crunched our way up the hill to this striking monument from the car park via the Jubilee Path, through the icy and slightly snow-covered ground, in relative darkness, back in February 2016. After a gentle 45min walk we were rewarded with the views seen...More

A wonderful view once you have arrived at the top. The walk is very steep in parts but worth the effort. It is a shame that there is no information board at the monument itself. A bench would also be nice in order to get...More

Hi James S, You would probably be fine but there are some steeper sections. It's a lovely walk in itself so you could always turn back. Instead there are lots of other beautiful walks around such as the 'Monadh Mor' on the... More

How to I get there, I tried to find the car park on Saturday but ended up at the end of a narrow single track road. Took the Boath turn off but no signs after that??

Hi, Once you take the boath turn off keep going for about a mile when you come to the trees on your left thats where you will find the car park. The car park area is in the corner of the woods and there is a small sign.
