Tongue Youth Hostel (SYHA)

Tongue is the main village in a series of crofting townships, that run through Coldbackie, Dalharn, Blandy, the harbour of Scullomie to the deserted township of Slettel.

The Village includes a youth hostel, a craft shop, a general store and garage, a bank and a post office and two hotels, the Tongue Hotel and the Ben loyal. It is connected to the west side of the Kyle by a causeway, built in 1971.

Tongue Youth Hostel is a magnificently situated Lodge on the shores of the Kyle of Tongue. The Hostel has extensive views all round – among the best in Scotland. They can make organising your group or school trip as easy as possible, arranging accommodation, catering and transport, and can help you put together a personalised itinerary, no matter how large or small the group.

A barren landscape littered with deep blue lochans and the stunning mountains of Ben Hope, the most northerly Munro and Ben Loyal, also known as the “Queen of Scottish Mountains” make a splendid backdrop to the Hostel.

Find top local attractions in the surrounding area. From castles to zoos, museums to art galleries, local restaurants, shops and bars or if you’re looking for a more active break away check out the walks and activities nearby.

The area surrounding Tongue is ideal for hillwalkers and climbers. Ben Hope – Scotland’s most northerly Munro – lies to the south west of the Kyle while Ben Loyal towers over the village from the south. There are miles of pristine white beaches where Grey and Common Seals can be seen basking on the sandbanks. Many species of bird and plant life inhabit the moors and shore. Salmon and sea trout fishing are available on the Kyle of Tongue, with brown trout fishing on the lochs. Come and spend time with nature, you’ll receive a warm welcome in a comfortable hostel.
