With stunning views overlooking the beautiful Kyle of Tongue, the Queen of Scottish Mountains – Ben Loyal and the historic Castle Varich, the Ben Loyal Hotel is the perfect stop on the NC500.
We have accommodation to suit all including ensuite hotel rooms with a view, self-catering accommodation and our soon to be completed luxury glamping development.
A small locally owned hotel with a well-stocked lively bar including a wide range of malt whisky, gins and craft beers as well as regular live music. Couple this with a cosy log burning stove and sample some of our fantastic local produce and seafood on our lunch and dinner menu.
The Ben Loyal Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Tongue, Sutherland on the North West coast of Scotland. It’s perfect for those of you taking part in the North Coast 500 route. Sutherland is, without doubt, one of Scotland’s best kept secrets; beautiful white sand beaches, craggy, mountainous peaks, vast moors draped in blankets of heather, lonely, isolated lochs, and haunting ruins of crumbling crofts from times gone by, where endless hours of exploring can pass without seeing another soul.
If you are looking for a place to rest your head after the journey north, a base from which to explore the Northern Highlands, spend a few days fishing on the famous banks of our local lochs and rivers, or simply somewhere to get away from it all for the perfect escape in outstanding surroundings, our family run hotel is guaranteed to meet your needs.
With a beautiful backdrop at the front of the hotel, fabulous food, great attention to detail and an enthusiastic team ready to meet your needs, the Ben Loyal Hotel is also the perfect venue for any special occasion from weddings to birthdays.
Please note we also welcome well-behaved dogs (extra charge of £15) in rooms and the bar, not in our Lounge or Dining Room area. If your planning holidaying with your pet, please phone the hotel directly to book.
