Sustainable Stays: Eagle Brae, Scotland
Have a mesmerizing trip in the Scottish Highlands with a stay at Eagle Brae. Eagle Brae is a village of self-catering log cabins set among the wildest glens, highest mountains and largest lochs of the northern Scottish highlands.
Eagle Brae’s eco-chic log cabins – made from red cedar logs from sustainably managed forests in British Columbia, Canada – are entirely powered by renewables. The open-plan cabins are carbon-neutral and self-sufficient, and come decked out in artifacts including Scottish motifs, local artwork and furnishings carved in the Himalayas. And no log cabin is complete without log burning stoves.
There are different types of log cabins at Eagle Brae, varying in sizes for families and couples. While Eagle Brae is a perfect holiday location for eco conscious individuals, it’s also a great environment, amidst the beautiful Scottish Highlands, for anyone wishing to recharge their batteries, get their creative juices flowing and do some work, be it writing, painting or even meditative work.
Eagle Brae is the manifestation of a dream by a husband-and-wife team, Mike and Pawana Spencer-Nairn. The couple recognized a market over-saturation of “machine-cut kit chalets” and decided to try and break with all conventions and create a unique, personal and wild self-catering destination, with sustainability at the heart of their creation. The owners’ strong ties with the Himalayas are represented in the log homes, with material from the area used in all of the log cabins. Making Eagle Brae an inviting experience within a friendly atmosphere.
