We ended up at this "hotel" on our way to visit some friends that live locally. We called in for a bite to eat before we got to our friends house to save them having to feed us' Thankfully we weren't staying here. On pulling into the car park we thought we had come to the wrong place as the... More

Spotlessly clean, quite charming and cosy. Beautiful views of the North sea/Atlantic ocean. Dinner was fantastic, you've really got to try the oysters. The bathroom is shared among 4 rooms which makes the morning hour quite busy. Had some trouble with Booking.com. On the day of checkout was told by Kate from the hotel that she had actually not received... More

Lovely hotel in the wonderful setting of Tongue, just up the road from the Tongue causeway. Nice outside table area and free wi fi available whilst enjoying coffee. Recommended stop on way to or from Durness.

We ate there (we stayed elsewhere). We had a pretty ordinary meal. The Cullen Skink was "off" but replaced by another dish. I ordered fish pie.
