A Dream in the Making

The Eagle Brae Story

The Eagle Brae story is the realisation of a dream, years of planning, hard work and investment for owners Mike and Pawana (pronounced Pubna) Spencer-Nairn.

Mike, whose family is originally from Scotland, was raised in Jersey, in the Channel Islands. After travelling to the Himalayan regions of India a couple of times, he fell in love with more than just the area. It was here that he met Pawana in her home village in Himachal Pradesh state – between Kashmir and Nepal – where her family ran a guesthouse. A love story for the ages, they soon got married and set up home in Jersey, where their children Rowan and Ishbel were born. In 2005, Mike and Pawana left their Jersey home to fulfil their dream of creating the ultimate self-catering holiday experience in the Scottish Highlands.

A One-of-a-kind Highland Getaway

Eagle Brae is set on an 8,000 acre Estate in Struy, Inverness-shire, which has been in Mike’s family since the 1930s. Today Mike and Pawana have made this breathtaking corner of the world into a unique, luxury holiday village. Instead of your usual run-of-the-mill holiday chalets, everything from the logs to the linen has been lovingly hand-made and the family’s ties with the Himalayas can be seen throughout. It’s a place where guests are free to indulge in the privacy of their own cabins or take part in the wonderful activities on offer.

The Eagle Brae story continues as Mike and Pawana – together with their amazing team and enormous, but friendly, Bernese mountain dog – look forward to personally welcoming you to Eagle Brae. Committed to creating a friendly, personal atmosphere and a holiday experience you’ll never forget.
