Date published: 11/12/2017

3 reasons Eagle Brae should be your number one New Year’s resolution

With the festive season well and truly upon us, there’s no better time to reflect on the year gone by. As 2017 draws to a close, thoughts turn to celebrating a brand-new year. So, what better way to kick-start 2018 than by making your New year’s resolutions? Booking a new year break at Eagle Brae should be at the top of your list of resolutions. Here are three reasons why:

A New Year break surrounded by nature

Nestled in the Scottish Highlands, our beautiful log cabins are surrounded by natural landscapes, including mountains, glens and forests. Each of our handcrafted cabins has been named after a bird, and each boasts a unique setting or view. Book a stay in our Tringa log cabin which sits atop an elevated ridge and overlooks the river Glass. Or, stay in the Loxia cabin with its private pond, and watch wild deer pass by every evening. From the comfort of your sustainable log cabin, you can catch sightings of diverse wildlife day and night. Or, sit outside on your private deck and look out for golden eagles, Scottish crossbills, black grouse, osprey, and kingfishers. During your winter holidays in Scotland, you can guess which animals left which footprints in the fresh snow. Or, wrap up warm and sit outside your cabin, whilst gazing up at the stars and listening to owls hooting.

Sustainable lodges in Scottish Highlands

Inspired by the nature that surrounds them, each of our handcrafted log cabins is sustainable and eco-friendly. Eagle Brae is one of the best places to stay in Scotland if you want to enjoy an environmentally friendly new year break. Here, you can rest easy knowing that your cosy log cabin is self-sufficient during your winter breaks in Scotland. Our micro-hydro scheme provides domestic electricity and hot water, while biomass wood-pellet burners provide underfloor heating for added comfort. Also, all water for cabins is pulled from a natural underground source, allowing you to enjoy Scottish water fresh from a spring. Here at Eagle Brae, we encourage you to help us with our carbon neutral journey. So, why not plant a beech, ash or Scots pine tree near the Eagle Brae village? Then, you can book a stay with us time and time again and watch your tree grow.

Or, if you love photography, book a stay at one of our cosy login cabins for your camera stalking trip. Then, wait patiently for that perfect shot of our red deer and black grouse.
