Thanks to Alison and David for an hospitable welcome, good facilities and accommodation and help with transportation to and from the Eagle Barge at Laggan Lock. A full and good breakfast. Only drawback the shortish walk alongside the main A82 road... More

The owners greated us and made us feel very welcome. It is a very nice spot to stay with easy access to major routes. I would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay for those touring in the area or those on active holidays.

Alison welcomed us in and offered us free cake and coffee in the guest lounge, which was a great way to recover from our 14 mile walk. Dave drove us down to The Eagle Barge for the evening meal, and they drove us back. This is safer than trying to walk along the A82 in the dark. The room was... More

Thanks for the review John. As you say there are not many B&Bs locally but we would hope this should not affect our own standards anyway as we try hard to give good service and good value for money. Glad you enjoyed your breakfast. More

We stayed whilst walking the Great Glen Way and were tired and footsore. David and Alison made us feel at home and relaxed and home made cake and tea on arrival was a lovely touch. The rooms were spotless and the bed really comfortable. Our favourite breakfast whilst walking is porridge and we have to say Alison made the best... More

We stayed here at the end of day 2 on the Great Glen Way. Alison and David made us very welcome. Nice to have home-baked cake and tea on arrival. David was also good enough to take us to the Eagle Barge in the evening and drop us off at the route again in the morning, avoiding a scary walk... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in June. Couldnt have wished for anywhere better and we have now been totally spoilt for any other BnB. Alison and David are fantastic hosts and couldnt do enough for us.

Excellently located on the Great Glen Way at South Laggan within view of the locks. Alison & Dave run a first rate B&B. Warmly received and provided a perfect clean room with everything a walker needs. Forest Lodge has an excellent & cheap laundry service delivering fresh clean & folded laundry for the weary walker.
