We stayed at Eagle Brae for a week with the extended family and had thr most special and wonderful time. The log cabins were perfect and designed to the highest standard, the views were breathtaking and the team have been incedibly helpful and made sure we felt at home. We can not wait to come back, I can imagine how magical this place must be at Christmas!
Our friends had stayed here earlier in the year, when it was cold and snowing, but enjoyed it so much they rebooked immediately and told us we should come as well. I have to be honest and say that the idea of staying in a cabin in, effectively, the middle of nowhere with very little in the surrounding area to do (certainly by foot), was not appealing to me in the slightest. However… …Once we arrived it I had to change my mind and admit I was wrong. We were staying in the Buteo cabin, which was amazing, although I have no doubt that I would not have a problem staying in any of the cabins. The cabin was finished to such a high standard and had such a great landscape view, that it would be quite easy to spend a few days there simply doing nothing apart from relaxing. It seems there wasn’t a detail in the cabin and on the grounds that hadn’t been considered and the log fire kept the cabin wonderfully warm in the evening. The outside areas were perfect for relaxing in the mid-May sunshine. We did have access to a car and I think I would view that as a necessity, although of course it is possible to get there via taxi (but I assume at quite a considerable cost). Without a car you are also a decent 90+ minute walk to the nearest shop and pub (only around 10 minutes in the car though). It doesn’t really matter what I write here, the only way to truly appreciate Eagle Brae is to visit for yourself! Highly recommended.…
I’m almost loathe to write this as I want to keep this place a secret! We came for a peaceful retreat and to enjoy the nature of the Scottish highlands and that’s exactly what we got. We were in awe of the cabins, they are even better than in the photos, the detail, expertise & craftsmanship is exceptional. A complaint is that you have ruined all future holidays as nothing will come close to the beauty of these cabins and how this place makes you feel. The combination of Mike & Pawana’s heritage shines through in the decor and works amazingly well. Dog falls is well worth the visit for some exceptional views. Glen Strathfarrar is beautiful but beware of the angry gatekeeper - we parked in the wrong place and she was not happy! The wildlife is impressive, on our arrival we were greeted by deer grazing by the veranda, then Shanti (the dog) paid us a visit each morning on her rounds. Meals from the concierge service were delicious. All staff were friendly and helpful and the efforts to leave minimal carbon footprint were also impressive. Eagle Brae, this place is exceptional, please do not change a thing. We cannot wait to come back.…
What a wonderful holiday, lovely scenery and staff very friendly, could not want for anything. Would definitely recommend and will be going back. Wildlife Deer roaming round the cabin, finches and woodpecker on the bird feeder
Simply fantastic. Everything from the website and information available prior to booking, the reservation process, the updates prior to to the stay and the arrival process is faultless. The lodges are jaw-dropping as is the location. There isn’t enough space to write and the place or staff / owners justice. If you are thinking about staying do not hesitate any further - probably the best place we have ever stayed and is definitely at the top of the list for return.
We stayed in Tringa for 5 nights in May and had been eagerly anticipating our stay for 3 years, having had to cancel our first booking due to lockdown. Eagle Brae lived up to our expectations completely. So relaxing and beautiful. The home cooked meals prepared by Eagle Brae were so good!! Just being able to order from their concierge and pop something tasty in the oven for supper was a real treat. The surroundings are amazing and the local area stunning. Tringa was beautifully located with a lovely view of the River. We had a super comfortable stay. Mike and his team are so friendly and professional. We didn’t want to leave. Thank you Eagle Brae.
We spent a magical week in Cinclus. The setting is stunning and the log cabin catered for all our needs. We have never seen so much wildlife-deers regularly near our cabin, birds, bats, ducks and goats. We loved having a balcony with a gate so our dog could enjoy sitting outside with us. There are so many beautiful walks nearby for all kinds of distances and we also enjoyed visiting Beauly for provisions which has a very impressive cafe/deli. We very much hope to return.
Eagle Brae is quiet and peaceful set in beautiful surroundings. We stayed in Loxia which was simply stunning. Everything provided was top quality and the attention to detail and personal touches made it very special. Would definitely recommend trying the excellent home cooked food from the concierge service. Our age group ranged from 4 to 73 and everyone loved it and wished we could have stayed for longer.
We loved our 7 night stay in Parus. The cabins are so cozy, well equipped and had everything you needed for a fantastic stay. We didn’t want to leave! It was so peaceful, and great for relaxing on days between hikes, where you could sit and look-out for local wildlife. There are opportunities to book local activities and we had fun trying our hand at fly fishing which we throughly enjoyed. We hope to return in the near future, thank you Mike and Pawana for creating this magically place.
Finally made it to Eagle Brae after Covid postponed our planned Easter break for 2 years and it definitely did not disappoint! These beautiful log cabins are the perfect base for exploring the Highlands as well as for relaxing in an amazing location. This is the best self-catering location we have stayed in in Scotland and we have been to Scotland a lot over the years. Thank you very much Pawana, Mike, Ian and the rest of the team. We had a fantastic stay and definitely plan on returning!
