Travellers' Choice
Forest Lodge Guest House is located in the Great Glen, in the small hamlet of South Laggan, between Loch Lochy and Loch Oich. The Caledonian Canal runs behind the Guest House and can be reached from Laggan Locks only half a mile away. At just 10 miles from Fort Augustus, 22 miles from Fort William, 44 miles from Inverness and 55 miles from Skye, Forest Lodge Guest House provides a perfect base from which to explore the abundance of activities and places of interest in the local area and beyond. The Great Glen Way long distance path runs close to the property and can be easily reached via a short walk, making Forest Lodge Guest House a perfect base if you are walking this 79 mile route from Fort William to Inverness. So whether you are planning an overnight stop or to stay longer, we would be delighted to receive a call or an email to discuss your requirements. We are open all year round, so no matter what time of year you fancy a trip to this area of the Highlands we will be open.

Warmest of welcomes from hosts after walking a section of the Great Glen Way. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We opted to have an evening meal there which was very good indeed. The sticky ginger sponge for dessert is worth a special mention....delicious! Breakfast options were super. Would strongly recommend.

Thank you for your lovely review Steve, so pleased that you had a great stay with us and that you enjoyed our food, especially the ginger cake :-) We very much appreciated you returning with the room key, at least you hadn't got far on your walk for the day before you realised you had it with you. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your GGW walk.

Laura and Lorraine were an efficient, caring, and responsive team. They picked up all the Great Glen Way walkers on a cold and rainy day, dried our stuff, and had our room ready when we arrived. I appreciated that they had essential items for walkers (blister patch, poncho, band-aids, etc.) and paying with an honor system. This is a great place to stay for the Great Glen Way.

Thank you for your lovely review and great comments. We always want our guests to be well fed, happy and relaxed ....... something we obviously managed to achieve in relation to your stay with us. We enjoy giving our guests a lift to and from the Eagle Barge if they are booked in there for dinner, saves the walk along the A82. Also you have done enough walking getting to us in the first place. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday, maybe we will see you again in the future.

Comfortable friendly guest house. Our hosts met us at the front door on arrival. Were super organised and helpful. Friendly and great fun. Both evening meal and breakfast were fantastic, exactly what we needed after and before a long days walk doing the Great Glen Way. Good sized pack lunch too. Very clean, good size room and nice hot shower! Thank you Lorraine and Laura 😁
