Welcome to your highland home

Whatever your passion, this house has a knack of fitting around its inhabitants

Relax at the Rock

Nestled between earth and sky, Eagle Rock is the ideal perch to take some time out, reconnect with what is most important to you, and allow the song of the wild highlands to wrap you in wonder

In stormy weather, curl up in the snug by the fire with a good book or movie from the well- stocked library. Watch the drama in the sky from a cosy window seat or prepare a feast in the dream kitchen.

Our guests say that being here nurtures heart, mind and relationships. They return again and again, finding Eagle Rock familiar, yet very different- especially in contrasting seasons

Architecture and design

As the creator of Eagle Rock, I have learned so much on the journey of its design and construction: about life, lines, the power of the wind, how a frame can transform a view – and the weight of stone

I am passionate about using the environment’s natural materials to connect the worlds of inside and out. Local larch and rock, Douglas Fir and beautiful weaves and fabrics enhance the simplicity, pragmatism and comfort that is the essence of Eagle Rock’s design. There is the odd fun flourish, like the master suite’s chandelier, or the hidden outside bath with its incomparable view of the Coulans!

Beginning with building the road to the site, years of love, labour, and collaboration with local craftsmen and creative friends were poured into Eagle Rock. It is one of my greatest pleasures to share it

Eagle Rockers and the Applecross community

Applecross, with its surprisingly wide variety of attractions for such a remote wee place, attracts people from every walk of life, from all over the globe. Most make it back over the hill: some of us just can’t bear not to live here

We have a volunteer-run 24 hour petrol pump, a hydro power scheme, our own broadband called Applenet, a community car scheme and village bus, a vibrant village hall and music scene and a shared gratitude for the beauty and culture of this extraordinary sanctuary

The guests at Eagle Rock have in common a curiosity, a sense of romance and adventure… and hopefully, decent brakes for coming over what locals call ‘ehe hill’!

Great thanks to the Milton crofters for their kindness in allowing Eagle Rock on its stunning site, and for all their help and support in creating it

Roddie MacRae, architect Matthew Barac, lighting maestro Svend Pedersen, local master builder Duncan MacGowan and his indefatigable crew, Donald MacKenzie, Gerry Esparon,

Dave Brooks, George Graham and Gill Fiarweather, Chris Calitz and the Stewart men persevered through gales and bad weather, some unusual ideas, and the considerable challenges of a project this remote. There is part of each of them – and many others besides – in the very bones of Eagle Rock

Their fine efforts have made it the kind of home people love to live in
