All my life I’ve wanted to be a writer. I’ve wanted to travel the world, see new places and (hopefully) share my adventures with an avid reader or two. As a copywriter, writing is my bread and butter. But like many cunning linguists I know, I quickly learnt that the life of a full-time writer is slightly less glamorous than I imagined. Instead of sitting in a meadow waiting for inspiration to strike, I’m just one more person who spends 9 to 5 staring at a screen. So when I finally got the chance to visit a luxury lodge in the Scottish Highlands for “work”, I was expecting to be holed up in a tiny room in a far-forgotten corner of the resort. To say I was wholly unprepared for what was in store is an understatement. But I am happy to report that my first foray into travel writing didn’t just meet my expectations – it exceeded them.

Eagle Brae is luxury log cabin resort hidden away in the Scottish Highlands

It overlooks some of the wildest glens and breath-taking munros

The log cabins are all hand-made. Which means every day brings new discoveries and hidden quirks

Inspired by nature, the cabins seem to blend into the surrounding wilderness

Deer, birds, pine martens, badgers and an Eagle Brae critter or two are your only neighbours

And the only thing better than watching the sun set…

Is watching the sun rise from your log cabin
