    About this property

    Perched on the hillside above the sweeping sands of the Kyle of Tongue, Tuinne Na Mara enjoys stunning sea and mountain views. Set in its own pretty gardens this delightful, detached, single-storey holiday cottage provides generous accommodation for up to six people. The main lounge has large picture windows that drink in the amazing seascape, with hills and mountains beyond. There are three attractively presented bedrooms, a separate dining room and a well-equipped kitchen. The gardens are a real delight, with lawns and mature shrubs. They are fully fenced to deter the local friendly sheep.
    Situated in the pretty hamlet of Talmine, it offers peace and seclusion, yet is within walking distance of local facilities, including a village store, pub and restaurant. The nearby village of Tongue enjoys spectacular views across the sea, with the mountains of Ben Hope and Ben Loyal in the distance. It offers a good selection of amenities and facilities, including a general store, hotels with bars, restaurants and craft shops.
    The surrounding area is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. For sailors and kayakers, there is a slipway and harbour close to the cottage. Horse riding is available at nearby Torrisdale Sands. The area is renowned for its loch, river and sea fishing. Permits are available locally for salmon, sea trout and brown trout, and boats are also available to hire.

    "One of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed at. The view was amazing. The beaches within a mile from the cottage were amazing. It felt like we were abroad but had the whole beach to ourselves. The cottage was fantastic and had everything we needed plus more. The garden was perfect for the kids and dog. We hope to return one day."
    "Fantastic cottage, located in a postcard scenery. Fully equipped with all essentials. Everything in working condition, not a lot midges :-)"
    "Cottage was clean, comfortable & spacious amazing views across the Kyle of Tongue we would gladly stay in the cottage again but there are too many other places to holiday in Scotland to return to the same area"
    "Lovely cottage going back again in October! 😁 X"

    "fantastic holiday very comfortable locals very friendly beaches brill very relaxing holiday will definitely visit again thanks"
    "A well appointed cottage with anything one might need for a Highland holiday. The view from the living room is outstanding"
    "This cottage is very rural so perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday. It is in a beautiful location with stunning scenery and lovely sea views from it. The village shop is well stocked and the Fish man ( who sells great fresh fish) visits once a week. We loved being a 10 minute wall from a beach where our dog could swim and there are lots of walks. We loved exploring the area. The Craggan, the local pub has a nice restaurant,serves food all day and we had a delicious lunch there(unfortunately a mile away)Our stay was very comfortable, well equipped, all your needs catered for but the decor is a bit dated and tired. But plenty of parking space and large garden. We had a wonderful holiday and would like to return."
    "Excellent holiday cottage with amazing views and location. Would stay again."
    "The cottage had everything we needed for our weeks stay, even 2 pints of milk. The kitchen has every utensil you'll ever need (although I needed the Pyrex bowl for my cereal). The owner had very handy post it notes around the cottage. The big leather couch and chairs were very comfortable to unwind on. There was a handy note about the midges as well (yes they can get very irritating) urging us to keep the doors and windows closed. We picked up shopping from Tesco in Thurso before our arrival and topped up what we needed from the local store which had more products than we thought it would. The nearest Spar and petrol garage is in Tongue.The one and only downside was the wifi not working. The phone line had no dial tone either. If we had kids that couldn't use iPads etc it would have been a long week. Be aware of your mobile phone coverage before you visit Sutherland, some are better than others. All in all we would stay and visit the area again. We also ended up driving 1900 miles that week to make sure we visited as many tourist places as we could."
    "Great bungalow and garden with beautiful views."

    "This is Bungalow has a fabulous view in a pieceful location. We would definitely recommend Tuinne Na Mara. It was clean and well equipped. Lovely garden."
    "Comfortable cottage in the most picturesque setting with outstanding views. Safe environment for children and dogs. Two minutes stroll to a beautiful beach. Could not believe that we would be swimming in clear torquoise water at 7.30pm in north coast of Scotland."
    "We had a lovely weekend and we hope to return."
    "Fantastic cottage with a glorious view. Very comfortable with everything you need. Our first week was very cold but the cottage quickly warms up and you can sit cosily and watch the sea. Our best holiday ever, thank you."
    "The view from the lounge is fantastic the village friendly area beautiful we had a wonderful holiday. If I were to be picky Sky tv would be nice and space to hang your coat! That said I would definitely return."
    "Wonderful, well equipped cottage with amazing views. Can't wait to go back! :)"
    "Well equiped cottage, spectacular views, good parking."
