The Kyle of Tongue Causeway crosses the Kyle of Tongue sea loch on the north coast of Scotland close to the town of Tongue in Sutherland. From the causeway you get wonderful panoramic views south with the mountains in the background.

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 3.8 kilometres (2.4 mi) long and it crosses a natural island, Tongue Island (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Thunga). The 183-metre-long (600 ft) 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.
