The Seamstress' Cottage, Lower Breakish is a charming traditional stone croft house with a private garden, direct access to the shore and panoramic views over Broadford Bay. With a double and a twin bedroom upstairs, it is perfect for families and couples. Lower Breakish is an ideal location to explore the Isle of Skye, Raasay, Lochalsh and Glenelg.

Superb location and views, total peace and relaxation.

This is the second time I've stayed at Seamstress' Cottage. The location is superb. Total peace and relaxation. Just outside your door (and from the Velux windows) are fantastic view across Ob Breakish to Applecross, the Isles of Pabay and Scalpay and to the mountains - nearby Beinn na Caillich glowing in the morning sun. Romantic views, definitely? Will the views live in your heart, absolutely? The house is basic but cosy, it is not a large property. It has recently been decorated but I wish the owners had gone a little further and updated some of the fittings, some of it is just looking a little tired. For instance the lighting mostly uses very slow to brighten low energy bulbs, some LED replacements wouldn't go amiss. Also note that if you're much over six feet tall the over-bath shower will be a bit of challenge. Overall though I love what the cottage offers in terms of location and offering a cosy haven after a long day out in the wilds.

The cottage had everything you could ever need for a weeks stay, the kitchen was fully equipped to cook/bake anything you could want & was very clean. There was a drawer with lots of odds n ends that could come in useful ie:-boot polish, batteries (presumably for smoke alarm) Clothes horse for drying clothes (you will need that as it will rain lol. In the itinery from the agent it said to bring towels. There was no need as all towels & soap etc were provided. Would definitely recommend it & would happily stay there again.



Cosy cottage but with some issues.

Comfortable cottage, lacked the little extras to make it special i.e. 'Welcome pack', 'toiletries' even some basic essentials like bin bags were not present and not even washing powder for 1 wash.
Beware of the 'creeping rugs' which are highly dangerous and we placed them out of the way to avoid trippage.
Grass rather unkempt, neighbouring properties nice and tidy so not a weather issue, in fact grass was cut on a wet day during our stay!
Advertised access to foreshore not at all easy, virtually impossible unless you are a mountain goat.
Access to cottage from lane, and this particularly applies to riders of motorcycles, also not great with rough loose stone on slope making it very hard work with laden and unladen bikes both in and out of property.
All in all not up to the usual holiday rental standard we are used to.
On the up side it was warm and comfortable.

Gezellig huisje. Vanuit de inkom heb je een mooi zicht op het water. Voorzien van alle comfort. Heel aangenaam is dat het huisje opgewarmd is op het ogenblik dat je 's avonds thuis komt.

Although basic, the comfort level was good with everything we needed. Very comfortable bed - we slept very well, and kitchen well equipped. Views and walks from cottage were lovely, although unfortunately we didn't see any otters. Good base from which to drive to lots of tourist attractions. Would definitely use it again.
