Kylesku Cottage is a perfect holiday home from which to explore this spectacular area. Situated in the hamlet of Kylesku just off the North Coast 500, the cottage enjoys views across sea lochs to the mountains of the Glendhu Forest. The property features a sun room which is the perfect place to chill out with a good book. The kitchen/dining room is a brilliant space with an enormous window where you can see the rolling hills and mountains across the loch. From the living room there is a patio door onto the decking, which gifts you a 180-degree view of the sea loch and surrounding mountains. The two upstairs bedrooms both have jaw-dropping views, and the master bedroom even has a balcony - truly a rarity in the Highlands of Scotland!
A couple minutes’ walk down the village road is an award-winning restaurant and bar. Perfect for when you’ve been out exploring all day and want to sample local food at its best. Highlights include langoustines, mussels, lobsters and hand-dived scallops all from surrounding sea lochs.
Other local highlights include the photogenic Kylesku Bridge, the 16th-century Ardveck Castle ruins and the three-summit hike of the local mountain Quinag. Also, only a short drive away are two of only four Munros in the Northern Highlands; Ben More Assynt (998m) and Conival (997m). Kylesku Cottage offers an excellent Munro Bagging opportunity!
Further afield but very accessible due to the North Coast 500 touring route you have the local capital, Lochinver, which is a great jumping off point for exploring the Assynt-Coigach National Scenic Area, one of only 40 such areas in Scotland.
There are countless places to go on adventures, but one favourite is the walk to Suilven, one of the UK’s finest peaks. You’re equidistant at Kylesku Cottage between the hub of Ullapool and the arty outpost of Durness in the far north-west near to iconic Cape Wrath. For keen fishermen, sea fishing can be done from the jetty in Kylesku, but there is also fly fishing in local hill lochs by arrangement (enquire locally). Up in this part of Scotland, only 30 minutes or so from the cottage, you will find some glorious white sandy beaches to enjoy, including Oldshoremore, a beautiful expansive beach with clear, white sand. Other highlights are certainly Balnakeil Beach and Sandwood Bay. Beach 10 miles. Shop 10 miles, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
