Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Scottish Highlands / Caithness and Sutherland / Tongue / Kyle Of Tongue
The Kyle of Tongue Bridge is part of the Kyle of Tongue Causeway, which crosses Kyle of Tongue sea loch on the north coast of Scotland.The bridge and causeway were built by Sir Alexander Gibb & Partners in 1971 to carry the A838, the road from Thurso to Durness, across the loch. Until 1956 there had been a passenger ferry but the route around the head of the loch involved a narrow road some ten miles long. The causeway is long and it crosses a natural island, Tongue Island (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Thunga). The 183m bridge is at the western end of the causeway and it has eighteen spans supported by twin piers. The bridge was fully refurbished in 2011.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Kyle Of Tongue and many more Tongue attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Tongue tour itinerary planning tool .

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.
