Wildland’s vision is to realise a loving restoration of this former manse in the heart of Tongue to become a cool and stylish boutique hotel – and to position it as a key stopover destination on Scotland’s North Coast 500 route.

Known as Lundies since the mid-19th century after the first minister to live in the building, the Reverend Lundy, we plan to complete and open the project by mid 2019.
The décor and interiors will be as distinctive as all of the Wildland properties are and the plan is to provide 10 beds in the main house, 6 further beds in the steading and accommodation for 4 more in a separate family unit. All stays will be bookable on an individual room basis.
Our ambition is for Lundies to become a landmark asset for its community, bringing revenue into the local economy and providing quality jobs for the people of Tongue and from surrounding villages too.
Lundies is not some Highland lodge steeped in history or a landmark building out in the centre of some epic landscape, it’s in the centre of this small Scottish village and in that respect we are especially proud of it. It’s a project that’s first and foremost a part of its community, a chance for Wildland’s guests to enjoy hospitality that’s nestled in the heart of an established but also vulnerable village. Along with steps we’ve already taken to save the village Post Office and to also restore the Free Presbyterian Church nearby, we feel at last that intentions are being matched by worthy actions.
We have taken to posting photographs of the work-in-progress underway at Lundies on a dedicated Instagram account, @lundies.scot, which you can also access directly here.
