Had another memorable evening at the Eagle on Saturday night with Will and Victoria really going above and beyond what is expected or required to provide amazing hospitality and service when we were the only couple there and it would have been easier for them to close up and relax. Not many people are even prepared to open at this time of year, especially in an out-of-the-way location, but this young couple have gone that extra mile to provide a warm and inviting welcome, prepare wonderful food on spec and give a unique experience that deserves to be rewarded with more visitors and grateful customers. Tasty bar meals are nearly always available but Will can offer first class food with locally-sourced produce if meals are booked in advance. I urge everyone to help support their endeavours!

We have been here before, and there's no place like it.

Visited for a drink one afternoon and we could not drag ourselves away so stayed for food (noticed a few others doing the same thing!). We just had a chips and pie basket meal which is unbelievable value at less than £7 each. Young chef and his partner were very friendly, and food was great.

Second time we had a meal which you have to pre-order, haggis neeps and tatties (with a shot of whiskey), and a haggis stuffed chicken breast. Again the meals were lovely, and they have a good selection of beers.

The atmosphere is great, staff friendly, nice to see such a wide range of people and some lively debate around the bar.

Good selection of beer (and whiskey)- bar food is available and an additional menu is also available there though needs to be pre ordered – really enjoyed our time on the barge and chatting with the owner and other visitors.

As it says on the tin, the only floating pub on the Caledonian Canal and a great place to stop for a drink or some food.

Loads of atmosphere and banter around the bar and called in for a deserved late lunchtime drink (or two!) to revitalise the tired body after walking from Corpach, and then walked back down the busy A82 later for dinner - don't forget a torch if you are doing the same and walking back after dark - and had a good salmon steak for dinner and more banter with canal cruisers moored at the locks overnight.

Ideal for walkers (and obviously the canal cruisers too) as the Eagle Barge is on the Great Glen Way at Laggan Locks, but also easily accessible for motorists with (free, I think) car parking facilities only 200m off the main road.

If you are staying at South Laggan you can either eat here or at the Great Glen Water Park a mile up the road. For a totally different environment with a random mix of the boating fraternity, walkers, locals and passing motorists, my vote is for the Eagle Barge, but remember to book ahead from the online menu if you want to have dinner, seating capacity and food storage space are limited so the chef will want to know in advance what you intend to eat.

Warm and friendly and a good place to stop.
The bar menu looked good too.
