Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Escape to the Scottish Highlands and the charming log cabin village of Eagle Brae to relax and reacquaint yourself with nature. Here, you’ll find luxurious, eco-friendly cabins accommodating two to six people. The cabins are all hand-made and have been constructed from giant cedar logs by master craftsmen who are committed to reforestation. Every log has been chosen, carved and fitted by hand and as a result, each of the cabins is a work of art.
Eagle Brae offers guests a largely carbon neutral experience and is completely self-sufficient in terms of energy and utilities. A micro-hydro scheme provides electricity and heats the water sourced from a sustainable underground supply that’s treated on-site. This focus on sustainability doesn’t mean you have to compromise on luxury. All the cabins feature underfloor heating powered by biomass wood-pellet burners to keep you cosy even on chilly evenings.
Overlooking a glen below, the cabins blend into their surroundings with their giant red cedar log structures and grass insulated roofs. Once inside, each cabin has its own character but all are cosy and welcoming. Large, open living spaces with wood-burners and comfy sofas create a relaxed atmosphere while Himalayan wood carvings add to the unique decor.
All of the cabins have a spectacular view of the surrounding Highlands and wild deer regularly pass through the village. They are all well equipped with modern appliances and the kitchens have everything you need to cook up a feast. However, if you want to put your feet up and let someone else take care of the cooking arrangements, Eagle Brae will deliver home-cooked meals to your door. It’s as easy as logging in to the Intranet service and placing an order of groceries, locally sourced meat, wines or pre-prepared meals.
Eagle Brae is located in a spectacular part of the Highlands amongst magnificent mountains and beautiful lochs. Here, you can truly experience the Scottish wilderness with 8,000 acres of untouched landscape to delve into. However, this doesn’t mean Eagle Brae is tricky to get to. It’s just 30 miles from Inverness airport and the station is even closer than that. The nearest village is Beauly where you’ll find places to shop, cafes and restaurants.
The biggest attraction remains the breathtaking scenery which is just calling to be explored. Depending on the season, you can embark on all sorts of adventures, from fishing to dog sledding. The team at Eagle Brae will help you arrange activities such as clay pigeon shooting or canoeing, or if you prefer, you can simply take in your surroundings on foot.
