The small fishing hamlet of Kylesku is set in the Assynt area of north west Sutherland.
Situated at the point where the graceful and award-winning road bridge sweeps over the mouth of Loch Glencoul and Loch Glendhu, the town boasts a scenic location. The bridge, opened in 1994, replaced a ferry connection and a 100 mile detour via Lairg if a traveller missed the last ferry. Boat trips run to the 650 ft Eas-Coul-Aulin, Britain’s highest waterfall, located at the head of Loch Glencoul, and number of wildlife can be occasionally spotted along the way including otters, seals, porpoises and minke whales. The boat also makes a regular trip to Kerracher Gardens, only accessible from the sea - a riot of colour and exotic vegetation in the rugged Highland scenery. There are lots of good walks around Kylesku and the most popular is the half day low-level route along the north side of Loch Glendhu to a picturesque pebble beach.
