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

I love the walk up to Fyrish Monument. It is very steep but the views are spectacular. It is very peaceful at the top and the monument looks so much bigger than you think it is from the bottom on the road.

You'll start your walk by ascending through a dense pine forest, to find yourself emerging to a tundra hill, on top of which you have a 360 view of the diverse landscapes of Scotland. Mountains, water and green fields as far as the eye can see.

A great walk! Challenging enough to make it a day out but not so hard that you need to be ovely fit or have special walking boots. It took us just under an hour to get to the top - it is steep but has a few flat bits which allow you to rest. The views from the top are... More

We had a very enjoyable walk up to the monument. Some parts of the walk are very steep and got the heart going, but well worth it when you reach the top and see the views. Lovely for children with the walk up being in woodland, lots of space to run and enjoy. We had a picnic at the top.
