Following major refurbishment, the Tongue Hotel on the world-famous North Coast 500 route, is ready to welcome guests back in true Scottish style, and we’re offering you the chance to win a stay there…

We have teamed up with Highland Coast Hotels to offer one lucky winner and their guest the chance to win a two-night stay at the luxurious Tongue Hotel in Sutherland, in the Scottish Highlands.

The hotel is located on the beautiful North Coast 500 route in Scotland’s far north and is reopening to visitors in spring 2023 following a three-month, £800k, refurbishment.

The 19th-century former sporting lodge now comes with 19 individually styled guest rooms and a newly refurbished restaurant and bar, yet retains its historic charm, with original wood panelling, antique furnishings, and cosy open fires.

Overlooking the Kyle of Tongue, the rugged Ben Loyal and gentle Ben Hope, and Castle Varrich, this part of Scotland is brimming with wildlife, and rich in history.

Our winner and their guest will stay in a brand-new Deluxe Feature Room, complete with beautiful period features, modern furnishings and local artworks. The pair will enjoy a hearty Scottish breakfast each morning, plus dinner in the newly refurbished Varrich Restaurant both evenings.
