Cairn on Lonach Hill
The origins of the Lonach Highland & Friendly Society Games lie in the most wonderful 21st birthday party held on December 15th, 1822 on the summit of the 1410 ft high Lonach Hill. The cairn was founded to mark the coming of age of John Forbes, younger of Newe (1801 - 1840), heir to Sir Charles Forbes (1733 - 1849), 1st baronet of Newe.
