Our spacious log cabins sit in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, surrounded by mountains, lochs, rivers and lush meadows.

Log Cabin Family Holidays

Spending time outside is a great way to reconnect with the family and nature. Here at Eagle Brae we have plenty of fun activities for all ages. Start with a gentle stroll through pinewood forests where you might see foraging red squirrels and wild deer. Then, follow the trails along Glen Affric’s nature reserve and watch golden eagles roam the skies above. Next, why not hop on a bike and enjoy a family bike ride along the lochs? Also, we can help organise pony treks. Here, guests of all ages can take a guided tour along the moorland and open hills on the edge of Glen Affric nature reserve.

Wildlife and Nature

Nestled within wild glens and beneath soaring mountains, Eagle Brae sits in the heart of the wild Scottish Highlands. Here, you’re surrounded by nature’s finest sights, sounds and smells. Take a family walk through Strathfarrar’s pinewood forest or along the beautiful wildflower grasslands. You might even see sightings of Scottish crossbill birds, red squirrels or herds of red deer. Then, head to the glistening lochs or the rushing Rivers Farrar and Glass. And, if you’re lucky, you might see black-throated divers and kingfishers diving into the water for food. Then, at night, whilst sitting on the deck of your cosy log cabin, you can stare up at the stars while owls hoot in trees.
