Treading Lightly on the Environment

Carbon Neutral Holidays in Scotland

At Eagle Brae, we are proud to be one of the few tourism destinations in the world that strives to offer largely carbon-neutral holidays. Committed to sustainable eco-tourism, we are entirely self-sufficient for all our utility and energy needs. We have our own micro-hydro scheme that provides electricity and hot water to all our cabins, while biomass wood-pellet burners provide underfloor heating throughout. Our water is sourced from a natural, sustainable underground supply, treated on-site and gravity fed to all our cabins.

Plant a Tree

We also invite our guests to plant a tree, whilst with us, to offset the carbon output of their journey to and from Eagle Brae. From £24 you can plan your own tree and/or build your own tree enclosure or plant in one of ours.

Making Sustainable Choices

Carbon Payback Scheme

We understand that genuinely carbon neutral holidays are achieved through a sustainable lifestyle. Which is why we encourage all guests to help us reach our carbon neutral goals by conserving water, preserving electricity, using vehicles only when absolutely necessary, and recycling all rubbish where possible. What’s more, our Carbon Payback Scheme allows guests to offset any impact their journey to Eagle Brae has made by planting a tree near the Eagle Brae village. That way, guests can rest assured their Highland getaway is not only gentle on the environment, it helps to preserve the environment as well.
