Tongue is a coastal village in the north west highlands of Scotland, situated in the western part of the former county of Sutherland and to the north of the Ben Hope and Ben Loyal mountains. Tongue is the main village within a group of crofting townships in the area and as such has numerous facilities and amenities including a post office, bank, garage and two hotels. The village’s name is derived from the Old Norse Tunga which is thought to refer to a piece of land shaped like a spit or a tongue, such as that on which the Scottish village sits.
The village of Tongue has played host to a number of significant historical events, including the Battle of Drumnacoub in 1433 and a significant battle between a Royal Navy warship and a Jacobite vessel in 1746, after which the Jacobite crew were apprehended by the village residents when trying to escape on land. The ruins of Tongue House, the historic seat of the Clan Mckay is a popular tourist attraction for the area but this has not boosted the village’s population to much above 1000 people. This therefore means that for an injury solicitor Tongue is not a location which produces many personal injury compensation claims.
