Northern Lights Croft Cottage near Tongue - Sleeps 2

Very charming small 1 bedroomed fisherman cottage in Tongue on far north coast of Scotland. Sleeps 2. No Pets/No wifi.

This detached, former fisherman/crofter’s cottage has been tastefully restored to provide very comfortable holiday accommodation.

The property overlooks the Kyles of Tongue, a dramatic expanse of pristine golden sand, and the many skerries that create this fabulous coastline. The ever-changing seascape and light make this area a truly get-away-from-it-all holiday experience. The area has much to offer, with Ben Hope and Ben Loyal for the serious climber and low level coastal walks. Smoo Cave, Castle of Mey, the former home of the late Queen Mother, Cape Wrath and a day trip from John O’Groats to the Orkney Isles are within a short drive. Loch and sea fishing are available, and a wide range of seabirds, such as puffins, waders and hen harriers can be easily spotted.

Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    • Tongue House / House of Tongue

      Built in 1678, it is the Scottish home of the Countess of Sutherland. Formerly the seat of the Clan Mackay, the house sits on the site of the clan's previous home. It is said to have been burned by Cromwell's army in 1656, while pursuing the Chief of Mackay. It was rebuilt by the Mackays several years later. But in 1829, Tongue House and the majority of the Mackay Estate had to be sold to pay off debts owing to the Sutherland family.
