Welcome to Tongue to Durness

Continuing west, the road crosses a desolate moor past Moine House (a ruin built as a shelter for travellers in 1830) to the northern end of Loch Hope. A 10-mile detour south along the loch leads to Dun Dornaigil, a well-preserved broch in the shadow of Ben Hope.

Beyond Loch Hope, on the main road, Heilam has stunning views out over Loch Eriboll, Britain’s deepest sea inlet and a shelter for ships during WWII.
