Escape to the Scottish Highlands to this charming log cabin village of Eagle Brae to relax and reacquaint yourself with nature. Here, you’ll find luxurious, eco-friendly cabin buildings that accommodate two to six people. The wood 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 log 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 log cabins feature underfloor heating powered by biomass wood-pellet burners to keep you cozy even on chilly evenings.
The cabins overlook a glen below, blending into their surroundings with their giant red cedar log structures and grass-insulated roofs. Once inside, each log cabin has its character but all are cozy and welcoming. Inside you'll find large, open living spaces with wood-burners and comfy sofas to create a relaxed atmosphere while Himalayan wood carvings add to the unique decor. All of the wood 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 Internet 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.
