Secrets of Eagle Brae, the Ultimate Highland Getaway
A Scottish Getaway with a Himalayan Twist
Eagle Brae owners Mike and Pawana have strong ties to the Indian Himalayas, as Pawana is originally from there. They bring an authentic Himalayan twist to our luxury lodges in Scotland. From the intricate hand-carvings that adorn the walls to the exclusive Nehru jackets available to buy on site and the Indian incense sticks provided in your welcome hamper. All these little touches help to make a visit to Eagle Brae a completely unique and special experience.
Inspired by Nature
Our idyllic setting means we are completely surrounded by wildlife and we bring elements of this into our lodges wherever possible. For example, deer footprints are hand-carved into the wooden staircases at all lodges. You’ll also find beautiful carvings of Highland creatures on the interior walls, and majestic chandeliers hand-crafted from deer antlers hanging from the ceiling. We love our Highland birds so much at Eagle Brae, we named each of our cabins after our favourites. Our larger log cabins, which sleep up to 6 guests, are named: Aquilla (Golden Eagle), Buteo (Buzzard) and Loxia (Crossbill). We called the smaller one-bedroom cabins: Parus (Crested Tit, Coal Tit & Blue Tit), Strix (Tawny Owl), Sylvia (Blackcap and Garden Warbler) and Tringa (Greenshank). There are different carvings and items to discover in each lodge, so no two are the same!
Here at Eagle Brae, you can experience the glorious scenery and wildlife of Scotland, but with all your home comforts and more. Our luxury log cabins provide a stunningly beautiful home-from-home environment with self-catering facilities. A Scottish Welcome Hamper awaits your arrival, packed full of tasty snacks and goodies. If you don’t fancy cooking, delicious home-cooked meals are available on request. Our lodges are always warm and cosy whatever the weather with wood burners, under-floor heating and our eco-friendly grass-insulated roofs. There are even secret log beds in the larger cabins, which are always popular with the children. We’ve thought of every little luxury to make your stay extra special!
