As you head north from Invergordon your view will always include Fyrish Hill (Cnoc Fyrish). At the top stands the Fyrish Monument, created on the orders of Sir Hector Munro as a way to provide locals with some work during the Highland Clearances of the late eighteenth century. The monument represents the Gate of Negapatam in India. This painting, dated 1901, shows the view as you make your way from Invergordon to where the town of Alness now stands.
