Our eco-friendly log cabins are in the best place they could be. And fittingly, there’s a ton to see and do in and around Eagle Brae!

1. Walking the Glen

Scotland is a lovely part of the world and is well regarded for its paths, glens and lochs. Exploration is a must during your stay at Eagle Brae, no matter how warm and inviting the cabins might be, there are vistas you would not want to miss. Glen Affric, a nature reserve, has a number of readily available paths but nothing’s stopping you from setting out on your own wild Scotland adventure.

2. Camera Stalking

If you’re a photographer, gear up for a hunting trip that doesn’t require a rifle, then this might be for you. Exactly as the name implies, Camera stalking involves hunting down animals with the express purpose of taking the best shots of them. All the Glens are suitable, so be sure to take a picnic as it can be quite an excursion!

3. A Trip on the Wild Side

If you really want to go all out during your stay at Eagle Brae, then we’ll be more than happy to arrange a canoeing or kayaking trip for the particularly daring that aren’t afraid of a little cold water! Be it for a brisk kayak adventure down the fast waters of the Farrar or a far more relaxed, family oriented cruise over the River Beauly, we’re always on hand if you need help in arranging things. We’ll even throw in a canoe guide to help you take on the rapids!

4. Relax

Of course, if you’re out exploring and taking pictures of the wildlife and locales all day you’re sure to be tired when you get back to your home away from home. Get a wood-fire burning, sit back and if you’re really feeling the burn, we have a selection of prepared meals available. You can even order wine from our specially selected wine list, delivered straight to the door of your cabin!

5. Tours of Inverness

Here at Eagle Brae, we’re in an ideal location. Situated at about 23 miles from Inverness, you’re not limited to our cosy cabins during your stay. Take a day-trip out to Inverness and explore the city that guards Scotland’s Loch Ness, home to the ever popular and mythical Nessie! Tours are available, but there’s plenty to see and do for an adventuring soul.

6. A Touch of the Himalayas
