Ever-changing, special, home
Favourite place near Kylesku Hotel

Upper Badcall, which is not far away from here, just between Kylesku and Scourie. You turn left and there’s just a beautiful view of the little islands and the ocean.

Favourite free-time activity

Walks and nature. Every day the sunset is different. You can be in one place and think you know the place, but it looks different in the rain.

Favourite food at Kylesku Hotel

Definitely the seafood, because it’s so fresh. For the guests, it’s nice when they sit outside having afternoon tea and can see the fresh delivery just here on the jetty.

They are really flexible here, which I really like.
