This B&B is pretty much faultless – a perfectly lovely place to stay, in a handy location in the middle of Skye – yet it doesn’t quite go the extra mile and lacks a bit of personality
There’s a lovely coincidence to welcome us to Canowindra when we arrive late one sunny September afternoon, after a day’s swimming in Skye’s Fairy Pools. It’s the first birthday of Olivia, baby daughter of the B&B’s owners, Georgie and Rick. Snap, ours is one today too. A personal connection is established, which is nice when you’re staying in someone’s home.
Theirs is a large purpose-built new house masquerading as a country cottage decades old, with tall trees surrounding it, a slate roof, two cosy lounges and just four guestrooms.
