Welcome to Kylesku Lodges in the Highlands of Scotland
Please see our rates page for prices and booking information or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kylesku Lodges is a family run business consisting of 10 Scandinavian design A-frame lodges set in 30 acres of private estate in the Scottish Highlands. The lodges are situated on an elevated site at the head of a sea loch on the beautiful Kylesku Peninsula, roughly 20 minutes drive from Lochinver. Quinag, a well known mountain in the Assynt range, provides a spectacular backdrop and each lodge is sited to make the most of both mountain and sea views.
The lodges are purpose built to offer quality self catering accommodation for up to four persons and each lodge offers panoramic views over loch and mountain. The lodges are in a secluded setting and yet Kylesku Village with boat trips, restaurant and post office is within comfortable walking distance. Kylesku Lodges are also ideally situated for exploring the Northwest Highland Tourist Route.
The lodges are heated throughout. The lounge opens up through large patio doors to a balcony with spectacular views over mountain and sea loch. This is an ideal setting to unwind and enjoy a relaxing drink while watching the sun set over the loch. Don't forget your binoculars as Golden Eagle, Buzzard and Red Deer can be viewed from your lodge.
During your holiday in the highlands you will find lots of things to do in the area. Should you want to just relax and unwind then this is the place to do so, or you may wish to discover some of the interesting local attractions. Beautiful, lonely, unspoilt beaches are within easy reach and there are numerous walks in the area. These can be taken as a leisurely stroll, or you can attempt one of the more adventurous mountain walks. Well behaved dogs are welcome, in designated lodges, by prior arrangement.
From Kylesku you can take a boat trip up Loch Glencoul to see Eas a’Chual Aluinn (right). Not only is it the highest waterfall in Scotland, but with a drop of 685 feet, it is also the highest waterfall in Britain. You will also be able to look at the seal colony during the trip. Trout fishing permits can be obtained locally. Above all else, the area is famous for its beautiful scenery and the many people who return year after year testify to this.
Kylesku Lodges are situated within walking distance of Kylesku village and the spectacular Kylesku Bridge.
The fishing village of Lochinver is a scenic half hour drive. The lodges are also situated at the centre of Scotland's first
Global Geopark, a 2000
square km area, which encompasses some of the finest mountain and coastal
landscapes in Scotland and a wealth of classic geological localities. Two miles
south of the lodges is a viewpoint overlooking Loch Glencoul, a sea loch
or fjord carved by glaciers during the Ice Age. On the mountains opposite a slab
of Lewisian Gneiss has been thrust over cliffs of orange-brown quartzite to form
the Glencoul thrust.
We are blessed with a wealth of wildlife in the North West Highlands. Red deer and common seal are numerous. Otter and badger are often seen and the lucky few have spotted the elusive pine martin and wildcat. For birdwatchers there is the nearby renowned Handa Island (left), with its spectacular seabird colonies. We also have local specialities such as Merlin, Golden Eagle, Golden Plover and on the high mountains Ptarmigan and Snow Bunting. Whale, dolphin and Killer Whale watching is possible at Achmelvich Bay and Point of Stoer, a scenic half hour drive from Kylesku Lodges. Visit our "Wildlife Page" for more information.
