This former Victorian sporting lodge is set in the village of Tongue in the North Highlands. Overlooking the beautiful Kyle of Tongue, Ben Loyal, Ben Hope and the ruin of Castle Varrich, it offers luxurious rooms, a cozy bar and restaurant and traditional Scottish breakfasts.

Rooms at the Tongue Hotel are individually designed with period features such as wood paneling, open fires and antique furniture. Each includes a decanter of sherry, sweets, as well as a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and Gilchrist and Soames toiletries.

The Tongue serves an extensive breakfast menu. Porridge, fruit, cereals and yogurts are followed by a choice of cooked Scottish breakfasts. Ingredients are locally sourced and guests can enjoy snacks and bar meals or more formal meals in the dining room, served with varied whiskey and wine menus.

The area is ideal for hiking, angling and climbing in the nearby Loch Fleet and Knockan Crag National Nature Reserves. Ben Loyal, the Queen of Scottish mountains is reached from Tongue Village, and the UK's most northerly Munro, Ben Hope is within 30 minutes’ drive. Tongue also marks the end of the long distance walk The Sutherland Way. This northerly coastline features fine sandy beaches including Coldbackie, Talmine, Achininver and Torrisdale Bay.
