Leave Inverness and cross the Cromarty Firth where you’ll enter the heartland of Clan Munro. The clan seat of Foulis Castle lies near Evanton village, just outside Dingwall. This is now a private home and not normally open to the public. However visits can be arranged by appointment.
Nearby is Storehouse of Foulis, a restored girnel or rent house on the shores of the Cromarty Firth which is run by Clan Munro. Stop off for a bite to eat in the restaurant before looking at the wildlife and history exhibitions which include detailed information about the Clan Munro through the ages.
Enjoy a walk up to the Cnoc Fyrish monument, which was built by Sir Hector Munro of Novar who served in India during the 18th century. The monument was created to represent the scene of one of his victories, the gates of Negatapam, and offers visitors spectacular views across Munro country.
Drive the short distance to Dingwall where you can stay overnight.
