Kylesku in three words

Pure dead brilliant!

Favourite place near Kylesku Hotel

Standing on the Skiag road driving home after a late shift and looking back towards Kylesku on a clear, starry night, feeling engulfed by the stars and Milky Way. It’s humbling to feel so tiny.

Favourite free-time activity

There’s a few: dinner with friends, dipping my toes in the sea and sitting reading by the fire. All of which ground me.

Give it the time and attention it deserves. It’s different every day!

Kylesku in three words
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 hear on the jetty.

Insider tip

They are really flexible here, which I really like.

Kylesku in three words

Revitalising, relaxing, peaceful.

Favourite place near Kylesku Hotel

I would say Handa Island for the nice walks we can do there and observe lovely puffins. On the top of that landscape’s really worth the trip.

Photography. I love capturing moments, landscapes and faces.
