Bus transport to Eagle Brae is very limited. However there is a good bus network from Inverness that provides frequent and comfortable travel north, south east and west. The main bus provider in the highlands is Stagecoach, with the 28 and 28A serving Beauly. A local company Ross’s Minibuses provides a limited service to Struy (route No. 308) – 2 miles from Eagle Brae.
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.

A Haven in the Highlands
Eagle Brae is 45 minute’s drive north west of the city of Inverness, between the spectacular Glens Affric and Strathfarrar. Several nearby munros offer the perfect challenge for energetic Eagle Brae adventurers. Three major lochs feed into the Rivers Farrar and Glass, providing excellent salmon fishing on Eagle Brae’s own private beats. And the nearby indigenous pinewood forest of Strathfarrar and the regenerating wildflower grasslands in Strathglass are the perfect places to wander in peaceful tranquillity.
Easy to get to, yet hidden away in the wilderness, Eagle Brae is just 23 miles from Inverness train station and 30 miles from Inverness Airport. For most of our guests, once they arrive they never want to leave this stunning Highland location. And with our home-cooked meals and online concierge services, they never have to. But for guests who do want to venture out and explore the surrounding Scottish Highlands location, our closest village is nearby Beauly (just 13 miles away), where there is a railway station, a number of shops, eateries and other amenities.
