Cnoc Fyrish, Alness, Scotland

Looming over Evanton on the Cromarty Firth is Cnoc Fyrish and the strange construction on its summit is the Fyrish Monument. The construction was the brainchild of Sir Hector Munro of Novar, who had it built in 1792 to provide work for the unemployed during the time of the Highland Clearances.
