Kyloe is a civil parish in the county of Northumberland, situated about 8 miles (13 km) south-east of Berwick-on-Tweed.

The former church in Kyloe was built in the eighteenth century, replacing a medieval building, and is now a private house.

At East Kyloe, the ruins of a late 14th or early 15th century medieval tower house known as Kyloe Tower now form part of a complex of farm buildings.[2]

The nearby woodland area is a famous area for rock climbing and bouldering. Known locally as 'Kyloe-In-The-Woods' or simply 'The Woods', the crags are home to some of the toughest climbs in the UK.
