Customer Reviews of Talmine cottage, nr Tongue, Sutherland - Sleeps 5
"Views are particularly magnificent and the location of the cottage is wonderful for touring either coast-line. Would have liked SKY TV as the reception was a little patchy" Mrs L. Andrew
"Beautiful location, friendly locals, Mackay, Mackay, Mackay" Lovely location with amazing sea views, well equiped 3 bedroom cottage, with most modern cons. Locals very friendly, if you are of Mackay heritage, there are plenty of "relatives " around. Close to Tongue Village
(5 minute drive) Make sure you go to nearby Craggan Hotel for meals, wonderful food at reasonable prices. Overall the base for a memorable holiday." Mrs R. Mackay
