It is hardly a surprise that every visitor to Eagle Brae raves about this place. Though it may sound monotonous, I have to add my review to it because we had simply a magical week despite almost continuous atmospheric moisture.
The log cabins are furnished to such a high standard that it is hard leaving them. They are warm, comfortable, have every mod-con imaginable and the help on hand from the staff and owners is truly astonishing.
There is a welcome basket filled with wonderful goodies and should you run out of ideas of what to do in the Scottish Highlands, there is a wealth of activities that can be booked via the office.
Having been to lots of self-catering places before this really is the first one that hits all the spots and that deserves full bookings all year round. You must not miss this, it's fabulous !!!
