Kylesku Hospitality Accommodation Guide

Kylesku Hospitality Accommodation

Kylesku is the name of small fishing village which until 1984 had a sheltered ferry where the toad to Scourie and the north from to south crosses Loch Cairnbawn just west of its division into Loch Glendubh and Loch Glencoul, from here there are spectacular views of Quinag (2.653 ft) and Glasven(2.541 ft) where the locks penetrate deep into the land with no roads to accompany them.

From its perch high above Loch Nedd, the tiny Sutherland fishing village of Kylesku offers breathtaking panoramas of the surrounding hills, lochs, and coastline.

To get to Kylesku, you'll travel through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Scottish Highlands, a popular tourist destination thanks to the abundance of opportunities for outdoor activities, such as hill walking, fishing, and bird watching, right in your backyard.

The Kylesku Bridge, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world, spans the chasm of Eas a Chual Aliunn, Britain's highest waterfall.

Closest services are located in Lochinver and Ullapool, both of which are reachable in a short car ride and have a variety of grocery stores, motels, restaurants, a post office, a bank, and shops, as well as a ferry station allowing access to the Western Isles.

Scourie Primary School serves elementary students, while Kinlochbervie and Ullapool Secondary Schools serve secondary students and offer daily bus service.

Travelers interested in seeing some of the North Coast 500's most famous sites can do so by crossing the famous Kylesku Bridge and heading into Assynt. Alternately, you might go to a hotel in the Highlands and take in the tranquilly of the vast, sweeping landscape. Savour the real Highland hospitality as well as wonderful food, drinks made with local ingredients, breathtaking scenery, and more.

Highlands of Scotland, home to some of the country's most beautiful highlands and lochs, are a popular destination for travellers seeking a taste of wilderness along the popular NC500 route.

Cottages and shepherds' huts with two bedrooms are available for couples, each with an open floor plan that includes the kitchen, dining area, and bedroom; a private bathroom with a shower; and a deck with a fire pit or a wood-fired hot tub.

Take the A9 south from Inverness, the Highlands' capital. This will get you to Tore. Keep going on A9 until you reach Wick or Thurso, two major Highland towns having ferry ports to the Islands and a wide variety of accommodations to suit a range of budgets.

Turn left out of Evanton onto the B9176 and the A836 Lairg Road; then turn left out of Inveran onto the A837.

After you've driven past Loch Assynt, take a right onto the A894 to reach Durness, the most northwestern village in Britain. Here, you'll find a general store, a chocolate shop, the northern sand dunes, opportunities for bird watching (especially puffins), hiking, mountaineering, Munro-climbing, mountain biking, and fishing for salmon, sea trout, trout, sea angling, and more.

Wonderful hill and ocean hikes may be found in this area.

Inspiring environment for aspiring photographers and artists.

John Lennon placed a premium on toughness, and it is widely believed that this trait served as an inspiration for the Beatles' song "In My Life."

Find a truly luxurious personally styled bed & breakfast in the midst of the spectacular surroundings of Durness, and then venture out into the neighbourhood to discover restaurants, shops, and a community centre.

Durness Primary School and Kinlochbervie High School serve the educational needs of the area's younger and older students, respectively.

Nearly 90 miles away is Inverness, a prominent Highland city with a wide selection of services and amenities.

National and European destinations are available from Inverness Airport. Or, board the train and relax as you make your way to some of the most breathtaking Highlands locations at any time of year.

The West Highland Line offers some of the world's most breathtaking train rides.

Take the train and leave your car at home; you won't regret it as you'll get to experience all that Scotland's Highlands have to offer in a single, breathtaking day. There is a wide variety of landscapes to explore in Scotland, including mountains, munros, lochs, castles, ancient battle grounds, and beaches under endless, brilliant blue skies teeming with wildlife.

You can go in any of the cardinal directions (north, south, east, or west), hug the coast, or wind your way through the mountains and hills to reach remote regions of the country. You can find well-known tourist destinations known for their breathtaking natural beauty, which draws many visitors who return each year to enjoy the various leisure activities, and tour guides who are trained to give safe instruction to fit all types of abilities and ages.

You can find fine dining, a quick bite, or a hearty Scottish breakfast or dinner at any of the many hotels and boutique restaurants in Inverness, all of which use fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Just hop on the B869 and head to Drumbeg. Keep moving towards Kylesku. Make a left out of Lochinver onto the B869 highway. Driving time from Lochinver via the B869 is about 30 minutes, and driving time from Ullapool via the A835 is about an hour; the crofting villages of Clachtoll, Clashnessie, and Drumbeg are located on the beautiful north west coast of Assynt in Sutherland, and are surrounded by stunning landscapes and vistas close to the sea.

The villages will each have a hotel, a church, a craft shop, and a general store, but Lochinver will have more shopping and accommodation options to meet a variety of budgets. The land in Lochinver dates back to the last Ice Age, between 8,000 and 10,000 years ago, and its history dates back to the Highland clearances.

Drumbeg, which includes a Post Office, shop, restaurants, hotel, gas station, and village hall, has added a viewpoint with parking on its western end.

To the north, across the bay, you can see Handa Island, a Scottish Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, as well as Quinag and Clashnessie's sandy beach.

Traveling north from Ullapool on the rural A838 to the NC500 at Scourie Bay is a fantastic road for motorcyclists, motorists, and camper vanders alike.

An unbroken path through secluded Highland lochs and over mountain passes, this route connects with a small stretch of the North Coast 500, a popular route for locals and tourists alike.

Near the head of Loch Glencoul is the magnificent waterfall Eas Coul Aulin(600 ft high) which can reached only on foot or by boat. There was an inn at Kylesku (now an hotel), and in the old days, when the ferry could be halted at the whim of the tide and wind, this was some comfort to the stranded traveller.
