Craig Mony, Drumnadrochit.
Craig Mony, Drumnadrochit.
The hill of Craig Mony (the usual local spelling is a single word, either Craigmony or Craigmonie), or Monie's Hill, is a vitrified iron age fort, though little evidence remains. It was named after a Norse leader who is said to have besieged it, before retreating further along Glenurquhart, where he was defeated in battle. The eminence is reputed to be a former site of execution. It is said that many corroded arrowheads, believed to be 12th century, were discovered buried deep in the peaty soil nearby.
