Descriptive Text and

Location Map of Painting

Moine location

In 1829, the Earl of Sutherland bought Tongue House from the 7th Lord Reay, clan chief of the Mackays, and just 14 years later he built the fortified farm building of Tongue Mains, with its seven round arches and gabled dove-cote.  The large double S Stafford/Sutherland monogram beneath a coronet stands proudly on the datestone above the high central arch, which leads into the inner courtyard.  At the back there is a raised circular horse-mill which used to drive a threshing-machine, and along one side are cottages for farm workers.  The narrow lane that leads past the farm is unusual (in Sutherland) in being overarched with trees, which screen the good pastures beyond.  On the opposite side, the trees form rustic pillars amid ancient stonework and shrubs in the grounds of Tongue House, and adjacent to the farm buildings is the delightful sanctuary of Eddie’s Garden, to which all visitors are welcome.   This hidden corner is well worth the short detour from the main road.
