The fully-fitted kitchen/dining area includes an electric cooker, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. Cot, high chair and stairgates are available on request.

The cottage has an entirely new upstairs bathroom with an overhead shower over a luxuriously deep bath. It will sleep up to 4 people in double and twin bedrooms. Linen and towels are provided.

An enclosed garden can be found to the front and side of the cottage with superb views overlooking Seil Sound. Ample private parking is located to the front of the building, and there is a handy drying area to the rear. What was formerly the dairy is now the bin and coal store.

Croft Cottage is typical of the whitewashed, slate-roofed houses found throughout the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Flanked by mature ash and sycamore trees, it likely started life as a thatched single-story building before being remodelled in the 1840s. Historically, the location of the croft at a crossroads of different routes meant that it was an administrative centre for the Breadalbane estate on the island. Until the early 20th century, a shop and offices for the county council were located where the car park is today.
