Editor’s choice The Good Hotel Guide: Room with a View Hotels
Kylesku is located where Lock Glencoul and Loch Glendhu join to form a sea passage Loch a’ Chairn Bhain which links to Eddrachillis Bay. This is the heart of the Highlands.
The village stretches back along the road from the slipway that used to be the southern end of the ferry crossing. The Kylesku bridge was completed in 1984 and since the Kylesku Hotel overlooks the slipway still in use today by the local creel fishermen. Nearby is Eas a’ Chual Aluinn, Britain’s highest waterfall. This can be visited on a boat trip aboard Rachael Clare.
Kylesku sits at the centre of a 2,000 km2 (770 sq mi) area which has become Scotland’s first ‘Global Geopark’. There is abundant wildlife and a wide range of outdoor pursuits in or on the lochs, mountains and white sandy beaches, including bird watching, seal and otter spotting, fishing, climbing and hill walking.
