Kyle Of Tongue Tongue reviews
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.
