Pedestrian causeway from Ard Thungs to Eilean Thunga
Pedestrian causeway from Ard Thungs to Eilean Thunga
In the old days there was a ferry across the Kyle of Tongue. (It ceased running in 1954. I assume that by then, there was an occasional bus service along the Kinloch road.) At low tide it was possible to walk along this causeway to Eilean Thunga, and so reduce the cost of the ferry.

Since the opening of the A838 causeway and bridge in 1971, using the route seen here would be quite pointless and, in view of the uneven and seaweed-encrusted surface, not a little dangerous.
