Foulis Castle

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.
For a complete description of the castle and its renovations, go to www.clanmunro.org.uk/castle.htm - What could be of interest to you is that within historic Foulis Castle itself there are two self-contained, private, self-catering apartments available for holiday and weekend breaks, the latter normally out of season. The apartments each have separate entrances and are located on either side of the Castle Courtyard over looking the gardens. Named The Pavilion and The Bake House, you will find more information on them at HomePage.
These quite different pictures of Foulis Castle that we have used are from Gary Brindle’s website www.scotaviaimages.co.uk – he kindly gave us permission to use his photo on the home page of our website. Have a look there and you will see aerial photos from all over the North & North East of Scotland from Durness to Dingwall to Inverness to Forres to Aberdeen and lots of places in between. 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.
