Create an itinerary including Kyle Of Tongue Tongue
The Kyle of Tongue (Scottish Gaelic: Caol Thunga) is a shallow sea loch in northwest Highland, Scotland, in the western part of Sutherland. Featuring a rocky coastline, its mouth is formed at Tongue Bay. The community of Tongue is situated on the Kyle's eastern shore and the loch is crossed by the Kyle of Tongue Bridge and Causeway.

The sea loch and surrounding countryside is designated as the Kyle of Tongue National Scenic Area, one of the forty such areas in Scotland, which are defined so as to identify areas of exceptional scenery and to ensure its protection from inappropriate development. The designated area covers 24,488 ha in total, of which 21,093 ha is on land, with a further 3396 ha being marine (i.e. below low tide level), and takes in the nearby mountains of Ben Hope and Ben Loyal as well as several small islands and the coastline as far east as Bettyhill.

  • Very photogenic, lovely place to stop for a cuppa & a photo on our travels around Scotland.
  • The views of ben hope from the road bridge are worth driving 431 miles for but there's so much more. We stayed at a cottage in midtown 5 minutes from the road bridge it's a stunningly beautiful place. Most of the roads round here are single carriageway with passing places, there are literally thousands of historic and prehistoric sites in this part of Scotland, bronze age, iron age, the picts and with its huge and pristine beaches there's something for everyone.
