Kylesku



The site of one of the most beautiful bridges in the world this outstandingly lovely village sits where Loch Glencoul and Loch Glendhu join to form a sea passage which links to Eddrachillis Bay.

This remote fishing village stretches back along the road from the slipway that used to be the southern end of the ferry crossing. Now by-passed by the main road carried over the bridge, which was built in 1984.
In the 1800s ommercial ferries carried passengers and supplies but the cattle bound for market in central Scotland had to swim.
Nearby are Eas a' Chual Aluinn, Britain's highest waterfall and Kerrachar Gardens.

Kylesku sits at the centre of a 770 square mile area that has become Scotland's first 'Global Geopark'. There is abundant wildlife and a wide range of outdoor pursuits in or on the lochs, mountains and white sandy beaches, including bird watching, seal and otter spotting, fishing, climbing and hill walking.
