Welcome to the Tongue Hotel

This former sporting lodge is nestled within the sleepy village of Tongue on the north coast of the stunning Scottish highlands. Overlooking the beautiful Kyle, the stunning Ben Loyal, and the gentle sweep of Ben Hope with Castle Varrich in the foreground, the Tongue Hotel offers the visitor a glimpse of its glamorous past and reflects a bygone era. 
Whether you come here for hill climbing, stalking, angling or golfing, or you prefer to while away the hours reading a book or playing a board game in our cosy lounge bar, The Tongue Hotel can offer you a warm atmosphere, excellent service, comfort and an attention to detail
