Clan Munro History continued

Foulis Castle is located eight kilometres south-west of Alness. It was held by Clan Munro from the twelfth century or earlier and for over 700 years it has been the home of the Chiefs of the Munro Clan. While Sir Robert Munro of Foulis, 5th Baronet, who was the first Lieutenant Colonel of the newly formed Black Watch regiment, was fighting for the Government in the 1745 Uprising, Clan Mackenzie, Jacobite supporters, raided Foulis Castle and set it alight. Sir Robert was killed at the Battle of Falkirk in 1746 and when his son Harry, 6th Baronet arrived home, he found Foulis Castle in a semi-ruinous state. The castle we see today was re-built by Sir Harry, and the work continued by his son, Sir Hugh and now by the present chief, Hector Munro of Foulis.


The quite different picture of Foulis Castle that we have used is from Gary Brindle’s website Scotavia Images on our Link page. He kindly gave Clan Munro (Association) Australia permission to use his photo. Use the link page to Scotavia Images and you will see aerial photos from all over the North & North East of Scotland. If your home town is there and you want to see it in a quite different way, Gary will happily send the photos to you in a tube.  MORE>>
