Eagle Rock on the Applecross Peninsula
A refuge. Elegant, eclectic and artistic. Positively Magical. These are simply some of the ways to describe Eagle Rock, an immaculately designed house perched on the edge of the Applecross Peninsula in Northwest Scotland. With views of both the rugged coast and the impressive mountains, this eco-retreat achieves a balance between nature and inspirational arts. Originally inhabited as a Celtic watch point for Viking invaders, it is now a place to observe the Scottish wilderness where the only intruders are in the form of deer, hares and otters.

Cross Cultural Journeys chose this spot as one of the best ways to experience both the environmental and traditional cultural wonders of Scotland. In our time at Eagle Rock we will delve into the ancient history of the area, from 7th century houses to the more recent Victorian Walled Gardens. Let us introduce you to the weavers and crofters who still make their living in this beautiful landscape and take a walk with a local botanist who will help you discover the plant treasures in the nooks and crannies of the rocky landscape. Taste the delicacies of field-to-table homemade dishes like no other.
Eagle Rock’s owner and founder, Catherine Stewart, invites you to join Cross Cultural Journeys at this singular and inspirational modern sanctuary. Come see why those who have visited Applecross will never forget it.
