Eagle Brae is part of the following Inspirations:
"Another north-of-the-border bolthole that offers a super low-impact holiday is Eagle Brae. This luxury ‘eco log village’ nestled in the Scottish Highlands has a fantastic carbon playback scheme whereby visitors can offset the carbon footprint of their journey by planting a tree near the Eagle Brae village before they leave. All electricity and hot water within the grass-insulated cabins is provided by the village’s own micro-hydro scheme and highly efficient underfloor heating is powered by biomass wood-pellet burners. The cedar log cabins offer a relaxing experience with characterful wooden interiors and home-cooked ‘slow-food’ meals prepared onsite using produce from the owners’ farm."
