About Us

Tanja & Sonia took over Kylesku Hotel in 2009 with a vision for a relaxed, welcoming restaurant in the northwest Highlands, specialising in fresh, ultra-local, seasonal food using the best ingredients. The historic hotel now has a team of up to 25 dedicated professionals who have helped us to win numerous hospitality and restaurant awards and (more importantly!) create the special guest experience here at Kylesku Hotel.

Langoustine tower at Kylesku Hotel restaurant
We are very well known for our locally caught seafood, especially langoustines.

The fact that many guests return year after year from far and wide for their “Kylesku fix” speaks volumes–rooms are booked up months ahead of the following season.
