Kylesku Hotel, Sutherland


Kylesku is a small fishing village in Sutherland, Scotland and up until 1984 it was the location for a free ferry transporting vehicles over Loch Cairnbawn on the main A894 north-south road up the west coast of Scotland. There is now a new bridge crossing the sea loch so Kylesku is now bypassed by most traffic travelling north or south.

Next to the pier that was used by the ferry is the Kylesku Hotel and this is still a popular place to visit and stop for lunch or dinner as the food here is excellent.


As a young boy I remember holidays in this area and staying at the hotel and in fact when I was just 10 years old I stayed up late in the hotel bar to watch the 1967 moon landing live on TV. So it was a nostalgic visit back here to see how the hotel had expanded and improved. Luckily on the day I visited the weather was wonderful so the views over the loch from the hotel were really stunning.


The restaurant has been expanded and upgraded and always offers some wonderful fresh local dishes. I could not resist trying some wonderful fresh langoustines for lunch and these were beautifully presented on a hanging skewer over a bowl of fresh salad.
