About your stay

Canowindra is a gorgeous, intimate B&B tucked away in a rural setting just outside the island’s capital, Portree. Thanks to its luxurious rooms, warm welcome, home baking and locally sourced produce Canowindra was awarded five stars in its very first season.

In the house, lovingly created by its owners, the individually designed bedrooms are tranquil and indulgent in equal measure, with big comfy beds and The White Company luxury cotton sheets. The bathrooms have freestanding baths and separate showers and there’s locally produced Skye Soap and Arran Aromatics toiletries.


Candlelit suppers

Your nights on Skye are all about unwinding; your hosts at Canowindra will prepare cosy two-course suppers which you can enjoy in the candlelit dining room before kicking back in front of the wood burning stove in the adjoining comfy sitting room. Retire to your bedroom to enjoy a rom-com or two - there’s a selection to choose from - and make the most of the sumptuous bedroom and bathroom.

The next morning, relaxed and refreshed, you’ll be ready for your couples’ photo-shoot.

Couples Photoshoot

Lynne Kennedy, an experienced wedding and portrait photographer, specialises in creating stunning, natural images of couples in love and knows all the best romantic and dramatic locations.

Quickly putting you at ease, Lynne will ensure that you both feel comfortable during the photoshoot, the result being a set of gorgeous portraits, the fabulous scenery of the northwest Highlands forming the backdrop. Images you will treasure forever.

Ahead of your trip, Lynne will find out a bit more about you both and run through some of the location options and then after your session, you’ll be sent images to an online gallery containing all the photographs for you to look at and choose from.

It doesn’t matter if you are newly engaged, on honeymoon, or just on a romantic holiday together (or even planning a proposal), a couples’ photoshoot gives you the chance to create photographic memories of that special time together.

Romantic Ramble

Collecting you from Canowindra, Skye Ghillie will be your private guide for the final morning of your stay. On the tailored tour you’ll be wooed by Skye’s magical landscape, plus stories and poetry from the island’s past, culminating in a romantic picnic lunch where you’ll be left alone to enjoy time together.

Package price £397.50 per person for two nights sharing a double room and including: Two nights B&B with flowers, locally made scented candles and bathroom goodies, chocolates, a bottle of fizz and a book of romantic poetry in your room on arrival.  Canowindra provide afternoon tea and cosy suppers both days of your stay. Daytime activities include a Couples Photo-shoot and a half-day Romantic Ramble (both activities include a picnic lunch).
