Shepherd Moon is a charming traditional cottage in an outstanding location just off the North Coast 500. When you arrive, you will appreciate the private parking and electric vehicle charger at the rear of the cottage. Shepherd Moon has recently been tastefully updated, with everything designed to give you the best possible accommodation.

Because we always try to exceed your expectations, you will love how fast the Wi-Fi is at Shepherd Moon. Character, comfort, and connected when you need it.

The space
This character cottage is in a tranquil setting. The cosy living room and fully equipped kitchen are on the ground floor. Upstairs is the main bathroom, with bath and shower, together with the two bedrooms.

The cottage has a large private gated parking area at the rear, complete with a 7kW electric vehicle charger that you can use as much as you need to during your stay, at no additional cost. This provides a convenient place for a couple of vehicles at a time and its stone surface means you won’t have to worry about mud in wet weather. At night, motion lighting will activate when you arrive and light your way to the cottage.

The front garden gate takes you to the road where you can walk to the beach or perhaps have an evening meal at the nearby restaurant.

Where you’ll be

Talmine, Scotland, United Kingdom

During your stay you will have beautiful sea views of the Kyle of Tongue with golden sand beaches only a short walk away.

There is a small store for essentials under a mile away and another one a few miles away in Tongue.

The closest restaurant is a very short walk away and there are a couple of other dining options in Tongue.

The dramatic landscape is home to several lochs as well as the impressive Ben Loyal and Ben Hope mountains. Smoo Cave, Cape Wrath and Castle of Mey are some of the spectacular places to drive to, or perhaps go on a longer adventure with a day trip to the Orkney Islands from John O’Groats.

Its proximity to the NC500 makes Shepherd Moon a compelling choice for anyone planning to travel the famous route who is looking for well situated stops that add to the experience. If you are an EV driver then the added benefit of the cottage’s dedicated EV charger could make this destination a key part of your journey.
