A History of Success

Date published: 27/11/2015

Awards and Accolades Aplenty

It’s hard not to fall in love with the seven cabins here at Eagle Brae. With a mix of innovation and culture, Mike and Pawana have set the stage for something spectacular – eco-friendly family holidays that can bear its acclaim with pride. In only two short years, we have accepted more awards and accolades than most can achieve in five.

Off to an Eco-Winning Start

Not even a month after we opened our doors in 2013, we became the perfect example for eco-friendly accommodation in the Scottish Highlands. We picked up gold status from the Green Tourism Business Scheme and soon after, the SCDI (Scottish Council for Development and Industry) award for Research and Innovation and were granted a rating of five stars from the Scottish Tourist Board.

Bound for Glory

On the 21st and 22nd of November, Eagle Brae hosted the Sled Dog Association of Scotland’s 25th annual SDAS qualifying race for the International Federation of Sled Dog Sports. Set on our expansive sled-dog track, the event was a roaring (or barking!) success. Not only were we able to be part of the sled-dogging in Scotland pack, it was an opportunity to showcase the exciting hound-sled rides we offer our guests, set around our gorgeous wildflower meadow.

But our winning streak didn’t end there. In 2014, we won the Best Holiday Accommodation Award from the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards. And in March of this year, it was joined by the Best Holiday Accommodation Award from the Scottish Thistle Awards.

Continually Raising the Bar

The Family Traveller Awards, held on October the 6th in the gorgeous View from the Shard, London was a prestigious and exciting event. We were more than happy to join over 200 guests from all corners of the travel industry, and walk away with a Highly Commended Award for Best Family Eco Holiday.

As if that wasn’t enough, TripAdvisor also recently gave us a Certificate of Excellence. And while reviews like this one, ‘Simply stunning’ does us justice, we’d argue that the sights and sounds of the Highlands around our cabins deserve all the credit. Completely self-sufficient in our energy and utility, we are the place to be if you’re looking for eco-friendly family holidays.
