About Eagle Brae Log Cabins

Eagle Brae is a luxury eco log village resort in Strathglass near Beauly. We have 10 hand-crafted full round log cedar cabins and a reception. Each with wildflower green roofs, and all powered by renewable infrastructure on site. We seek to provide guests with a luxurious, yet environmentally sound, holiday experience. Embracing traditional craftmanship and immersing guests in Highland wildlife and culture.

Our cabins are all adorned with hand-carvings, which celebrate our Pictish and Celtic history, as well as local wildlife. The landscape around Eagle Brae is deliberately wild to encourage the wildlife. All guests see deer grazing amongst the cabins, and spot various other wild animals. Our aim is to provide an environment for guests to switch off from their busy lives. Striking the delicate balance between sustainability and luxury, seclusion and convenience.

Bedroom in log cabin

We exclusively offer an online concierge service whereby guests can order prepared meals, groceries, alcohol and meats from Eagle Brae’s own farm, all of which we deliver to the cabins. We organise a range of unique activities such as sled dog rides, gorge canoeing, pony trekking and black grouse safaris, amongst others. Guests also get the chance to plant a tree to offset the carbon output of their journey to and from Eagle Brae.

Having been open for nearly 6 years and introducing 3 new cabins in December, we have achieved some impressive milestones and have lots of exciting plans for the future.
