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 moorland and on the summit.

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 with ballast water. They have to be stopped.

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 visitors alike

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 eyes on the monument and the view from the top is spectacular!! I also found... More

Surprised not to see the usual flow of water on my ascent, and fortunately the midgies were keeping away today. Blaeberries out in abundance. Picking up some geocaches and taking the long circular route back down to Jubilee Car Park. Breath taking views (or is that just because I'm so unfit??) Only spoiler was the couple of car batteries and... 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 in my photos below, complimented by a stunning starlight night sky. In the first of... 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 your breath back!! If you take dogs with you beware of the peaty pools -... More
