Can you give me direction to get to Tongue from preston Lancashire by Plane and train. would be grateful
There is a bus along the north coast to Bettyhill which apparently will continue to Tongue 'on request'.
Thurso Tourist Information may have more information on this and be able to help. Contact details here:
DHmellor efficient as ever has beaten me to an answer....
It's a question lots of woman want to know.
This will be a very, very , very long journey.
By plane you need to get to Manchester airport and take a Flybe fight to inverness. The flight leaves around 8am though so it will be a very early start for you.
From inverness you can take the bus or train to Thurso however you will arrive too late to catch the bus to Tongue so you will need to overnight in Thurso and catch the 0940 Stagecoach 73 service in the morning arriving in Tongue at 11:20.
Thanks very much for your help much appreciated.
Thanks a lot for your help much appreciated
Thanks a lot for your help
thank you for that very helpful
Some of the information given in this thread is wrong and some is misleading.
The nearest airport to Tongue is not at Inverness, it is at Wick.
There is a regular bus service from near Wick Airport to Thurso which should get you there in time for the bus to Tongue (arrive 1755).
You need to check dates, times and pickup points with Flybe and the bus operators (try Traveline).
Traveline doesn't seem to want to know about Tongue - perhaps because of the "on request" nature of the service??
