Talmine is a crofting and fishing township, overlooking Talmine Bay, an inlet on the western shore of Tongue Bay[1] in northern Sutherland, Scottish Highlands and is in the Scottish council area of Highland. The Shamrock, a 19th-century sloop located within the bay, is protected by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland.[2] She can be seen in the photo to the right, on the beach, underneath/between the stone building and blue car roughly centre image.
