About Catherine Stewart
I fell in love with Applecross in 1998 - and it only took 10 years to find the perfect spot to build. First, I had to carve out the road to the site. With the help of friends, family, an amazing archtect and local craftspeople - I hope I have created a beautiful place that blends in with its surrounds and which is a pleasure to inhabit. A South African (with Scottish lineage), I am at home in this highland wildness - enveloped by warmth and comfort and sculpture collected over a lifetime of travel. The media snug and library is packed with beautiful books and a very varied film collection. I love to see how people respond to, and play with the lighting, the furniture, the art. For me, Eagle Rock strikes a balance I savour - between the sanctuary and solitude of its location and the way the house seems to flow and wrap around the very varied groups and couples who stay here...It brings out the best in people.
Catherine Stewart purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2014
Why Catherine Stewart chose Strathcarron
Eagle Rock is built beneath the mythic rock it is named for. It lies within an ancient sanctuary of standing stones, on a part of the cliff known as the Black Drum, I 15 mins walk equidistant between church and pub, totally hidden from sight, yet with panoramic views, the house lies in a hollow, with the mountains at its back and the sea before it. The house is designed to mirror and harmonies with its surrounds, with local stone and wood, handcrafted for comfort and beauty.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Guests have identified different highlights, but the hot-tub, views, the lighting and the comfortable beds get the most mentions. Power showers get good comments! Many of the cyclists and mountaineers love the huge baths and power showers. Foodies love the kitchen and the fact that there is so much fridge space. Temperature room control and underfloor heating make the place a pleasure to be in winter and people use the wood burning stove in the library a lot in winter.
