Buteo, Loxia and Aquila @ Eagle Brae Log Cabins are part of a ten cabin luxury log village resort, mixing all modern amenities with visual rustic charm. They each sleep 4-6 persons. Entirely powered by renewables, genuine log cabins constructed from colossal cedar trunks with turf roofs on top and wild deer grazing in amongst the cabins.
Buteo nestles in amongst the birch trees on the edge of an elevated ridge with fantastic views down Strathglass looking back towards Erchless castle. With a private deck facing away from the other cabins, Buteo enjoys a secluded and uninterrupted view of the glen.
Loxia is situated in a peaceful Birch grove overlooking the upper pond at the back of the old broch. The views looking out over the pond towards Beauly are fantastic. The pond margins nestle right up to the cabin plot making this a serene and secluded spot to be.
Aquila is a worthy candidate to be our signature log cabin. Perched on the edge of a steep face with incredible elevated views both up, down and across the glen, its an amazing spot to be.
Located in-between the serene beauty of Glen Affric and Glen Strathfarrar, the finest remaining stands of pristine Caledonian pine-forest wilderness, Eagle Brae is a luxury self-catering eco-resort entirely powered by renewables. Genuine hand-crafted log cabins topped with wild-flower green roofs. There are no machine cut logs and no two logs the same: every cabin is a unique handmade work of log art. The cabin interiors are finished with hand carved wooden panels depicting Scottish wildlife, Celtic knotwork and Pictish motifs. Everything at Eagle Brae is hand-made like the good old days: hand-crafted logs, hand-woven tweed curtains, custom hand-made hardwood furniture, hand-carved interiors and hand-woven cotton rugs. The cabins are set well apart around an old Highland broch on an elevated ridge overlooking beautiful Strathglass. Eagle Brae has been specifically designed as a carbon neutral tourist destination: powered by a micro-hydro turbine and heated by biomass boilers. The ultimate Highland hideaway.
How to get here:-
Eagle Brae is located 13 miles west of Beauly, around 20 miles west of Inverness, and about 30 miles from Inverness Airport. Frequent trains travel to Inverness from both Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as from London, including the Caledonian Sleeper service from Euston.
Domestic airlines run regular flights to Inverness from London Gatwick, Luton, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester. For guests travelling from Europe and further afield, KLM now operates regular direct flights to Inverness from a European hub airport, Amsterdam Schiphol. There are also seasonal direct flights from other destinations such as Dusseldorf and Jersey among others.
By road you can approach from the south via Inverness or from the west via Drumnadrochit and Cannich. We have a fairly steep driveway up to the cabins so we have designed a winter parking area at the bottom should any spells of significant snowfall prevent guests from accessing the site using their own vehicle. In such an event, an Eagle Brae all-terrain vehicle will take you and your baggage up to your log home.
