The Eagle Rock
The magnificent journey to Applecross is an adventure in itself, so when you traverse the famous mountain pass and settle into the house, we invite you to immerse yourself in this extraordinary and magical place. Apart from its mysterious beauty, this ancient sanctuary of the Applecross Peninsula has something to offer everyone.
This house is special. Designed immaculately, it is equipped with high-end fittings and all the mod-cons, like underfloor heating and flexible lighting, a top-notch kitchen, speedy satellite WiFi throughout, lovely linen – and dozens of delightful surprises. The lodge is self-catering, but an in-house chef is usually available by arrangement.
Best infinity hot tub
in the highlands
Sink into a bubbling hot-tub-over-the-sea, and soak in views from Skye’s epic Cuillin mountains to Hebridean islands without another dwelling in sight. Fire up the gas or wood BBQs, or gather the clan around the firepit to enjoy sunsets, impossibly bright stars and sometimes, the Northern Lights.

The main house comfortably sleeps 14 and has enough space to easily accommodate larger groups for one-off events. Eagle Rock is perfect for big family holidays, intimate wedding celebrations, special birthdays, clan reunions and bijou yoga or work retreats/staycations.

Connect with our deep history at Eagle Rock
The house, named for the rock above it, is built within a circle of ancient standing stones that mark a Gaelic Clachan or Sanctuary. The ancient Celts chose this exact spot for their watch fire – a vital warning system for the Viking invasions that began in AD 737.
In more peaceful times, it’s where local lovers went to be alone – totally private, yet not too far from the village.
