    The Kylesku Hotel is an old coaching inn dating back to 1680. The hotel has a cosy bar area with an open log fire and very welcoming atmosphere. The bar was full when we visited but we were shown to a nice corner table by the deep recessed windows overlooking the mountains and loch in the adjoining restaurant. This is the only option available here...

    The teashop was situated on Edrachillis bay with a wonderful view of the bay and the mountains. Binoculars were placed on the window ledge to let visitors scan the hills and see the waterfall.The owner sat knitting or doing other crafts while the clients had their tea and scones. Simple but enjoyable. Tea with a fruit scone

    We visited Sutherland on Easter Sunday but every Sunday is the same here. I was a bit surprised but pleased too to find everything in this quiet corner of Scotland is closed on a Sunday except for any hotel you may find, they have to remain open under the licensing laws. The Free Church of Scotland dominates the religious practise around here and hold fast to the old ways of keeping the Sabbath Holy. What better way to enjoy a Sunday just admiring the land and seascapes with nothing to intrude on your thoughts - sometimes in this modern world it is good to get back to the old ways and just relax and enjoy a Sunday with no added extras just the great outdoors which are always open to everyone.

    The little Kirk of Assynt was first constructed in 1741 it was renovated in 1900 and closed in 1970 when the congregation was moved to the bigger settlement of Lochinver. In 1997 the project of Historic Assynt was founded and the Church was saved from its fate of a crumbling ruin. The interior of the Church today displays a small museum charting...

  • Kylesku & Loch Glendhu

    Kylesku is a tiny, peaceful little village which sits on the shores of the sea loch Glendhu. Alfred Wainwright, a legendery walking writer once wrote of Kylesku "Anyone with an eye for impressive beauty will not regard time spent at Kylesku as wasted. I could spend a day here, just looking." I would certainly agree on all counts with him. Since the...

  • Take the High Road for the best views

    When we left Unapool we decided to take the B869 road to Lochinver, a journey of twenty five miles along a single track road. Its amazing where curiousity may take you, the drive was awesome with many hairpin bends and gradients upto or indeed down to 25%. There was very little traffic using the road as we passed through unbelievable land and sea...

    Favorite thing: The name Sutherland would suggest to the visitor it lies to the South in Scotland but in reality it extends to the North and spreads over from the Atlantic to the North Sea. The Vikings named it Sutherland during their invasions because it was the Southern Limits to their territories. The Gaels named it Du'thaich 'Ic Aoilh a more fitting name translated into English as 'The Land of MacKay' It was with great delight I also found little Unapool on VT's Data Base with one tip - what better way to promote this rugged, pristine, isolated but accessable region.

    Fondest memory: We didn't see a fraction of what Sutherland has to offer but what we did see was pure natural beauty. One thing struck me most while thinking back on our visit - I don't recall seeing any litter bins but no litter was evident - this place commands respect from the visitor who must always take any litter away with them. Sutherland has a lasting appeal with me and I will be back to sample some more of this unspoilt area.
