Eco Friendly Highlands Holidays with Eagle Brae
The Highlands and Inverness
The Scottish Highlands are huge, with a number of mountain ranges and the highest mountain in the UK. Wildlife flocks to the Highlands and it is hugely popular for visiting due to its remote nature and romantic air of mystery – not every district of the UK can call a Monster one of its claims to fame.
Eagle Brae sits 23 miles away from Inverness, a historic city that is often regarded as the unofficial capital of the Scottish Highlands. And according to a report done in 2015, it is the happiest place to live in Scotland!
Both the Inverness airport and train station are only a short drive away from our cabins, though the nearest train station is actually in Beauly, a town that rests at 13 miles away from Eagle Brae. Trains are frequent and there are a number of routes that can be taken by car – which is perfect for soaking up the sights of the wild Highlands, a taste of the sheer wonder on display here at Eagle Brae.
Eagle Brae, The Perfect Spot for an Eco Holiday
Speaking of wonder, Eagle Brae itself is in Strathglass. A wide glen that stretches between Glen Affric and Cannich to Beauly, Strathglass has a long and interesting history. At separate points in time it has been a loch and a glacier. Today it has found a nice balance as a home to wildlife and our excellent log cabins.
The Scottish Highlands are stunning no matter what time of year you visit, and Eagle Brae is no exception to that rule. Our humble collection of holiday lodges are blessed with lovely views and all manner of wild guests, ranging from pine martens to inquisitive deer that want to know what the fuss is all about.
