Staycation Scotland 2021: These secluded Highland log cabins with spectacular views could be the ultimate in eco-friendly rustic luxury
Surrounded by beautiful Scottish scenery on an idyllic Highland estate, Eagle Brae is certain to give you a holiday to remember.
The seven hand-crafted log cabins at Eagle Brae, around 25 miles west of Inverness, may look rustic, but on the inside they ooze pure luxury.
They sit on the 8,000-acre Struy Estate amidst glens, mountains, rivers and lochs – and a wealth of spectacular wildlife.
And it promises to be a staycation that’s good for both you and the planet – the site is proudly sustainable and self-sufficient for utility and energy, using a micro-hydro scheme to provide electricity and hot water, while each cabin comes with its own bio-mass boiler
Each grass-roofed cabin, built from sustainable Wester Red Cedar logs, takes up a private and secluded spot on a hill overlooking the glen, with views of the River Glass and wildlife ponds.Inside there are a wealth of design flourishes, with Himalayan-carved wooden furnishings, stylish natural decor and hand-woven fabrics.The four smaller cabins have one double bedroom, whilst the three larger cabins, Buteo, Loxia and Aquila have an additional en-suite bedroom and two single log beds on the mezzanine.
All the cabins feature an open-plan living area comprising a sitting room with log burner, a kitchen and a dining area – all under a dramatic cathedral ceiling and a mezzanine balcony.
The surrounding area offers plenty of amazing walks, rivers to fish and Munros to bag.
