A luxurious, secluded, award-winning eco-lodge, 15 minutes walk from the award winning Applecross Inn, this beautiful highland home from home is only 90 mins drive from the Isle of Skye or Inverness.
Enter the ancient spiritual sanctuary of Applecross via the spectacular Bealach na Ba, and arrive into Eagle Rock, which is built on the site of an ancient Viking watchfire. Settle in to soak up the wildness, passing wildlife and incredible panoramic views - from the infinity view HOT-TUB, or wrapped in comfort by the library fire with a whisky in your hand.
Eagle Rock is the definition of low key luxury and pragmatism. It's beautiful and comfortable, equipped with high end audio, WiFi and tech, handcrafted fittings and fixtures, (including the magnificent harp-shaped staircase, carved from a giant local Douglas Fir), and a Michelin chef designed kitchen.
The lodge's large, flexible spaces lend themselves to fitting around the different groups, and is perfect for special gatherings of families and friends. Small destination weddings or celebrations, where families or generations come together work well here.
There is warmth everywhere, even room by room and underfoot! (Honeymoon couples, retreat groups, and wedding parties love us!). Our winter months are almost as full as the summer ones, though the holiday is more about enjoying the incredible drama outside from warmth, space and comfort.
Our website can tell you more about bespoke catering services, botanical, cultural and historical offerings, wildlife luxury cruises...but tesco and highland wholefoods deliver food and beverages to the door, so you can order and book online before your trip. A huge fridge freezer, industrial ice machine and two drinks fridges should see you right! (Americans - I got the ice machine especially for you!).
So often, guests arrive with lots of plans, and then find they are really very happy hanging out on the deck or media and library snug by the fire or a window seat. The hot tub heats up to 40degrees, so it's brilliant, even in winter, when you can catch the Northern Lights.
DESIGNED BY AN AWARD WINNING ARCHITECT, (who put his expertise in designing six star South African game lodges using local materials to good use), wilderness, luxury, and ever-changing vistas make Eagle Rock a jaw-dropping experience. The house has 2500m of floor space, yet a playful flow of intimate, cozy nooks with the large living makes it a popular destination for couples. With fireplaces a stunning lighting scheme to fit different moods and functions, a huge deck and garden, and a Michelin chef designed/equipped kitchen.
This eco sanctuary was built as a labour of love over years by the owner. It exists to inspire and nourish those who want to step out of their daily reality for a while and connect with each other and the heartbeat of the Highlands.
Keep an eye out for passing porpoises, otters, eagles and other wildlife. Listen to the wind roar from the depths of a cozy fireside leather sofa in the library as dramatic storms sweep across the bay from Skye. Dip into a lifetime's collection of books, films, sculptures, artworks and games. Enjoy meals at the huge, specially commissioned ironwood dining table in the vast dining room.
There is a large firepit down a wheelchair accessible pathway from the infinity hot-tub, and a large fenced garden. Golfers have been known to practice their putting for hours on the lawn, and the house has a croquet set.
