About

#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in South Laggan
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.

Forest Lodge is a perfect stopover for walkers doing the Great Glen Way. The rooms are excellent and both breakfast and evening meals are highly recommended. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and even offer a pick-up and drop off service to avoid a 1½ mile walk along the busy A82. The accommodation is charming and comfortable and I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Laura and Lorraine rescued us from a horridly planned itinerary arranged by Sherpa Van. allegedly the 'travel experts' and we will be forever grateful. A day ahead they called to enquire about our meal requirements, which Sherpa Van has not made us aware. They really went the extra mile to show us the route, welcome us and provide us with a comfortable room and meal. Nothing was too much for them. Forever grateful.

Ideal stop for walkers. We were fortunate to be the only guests so we had the lovely garden to ourselves on a beautiful sunny evening. Room was clean and comfortable. The hosts were very obliging and welcoming and seem to have thought of everything to make it a comfortable stay. We had the evening meal there and it was very nice indeed, as was breakfast. Would highly recommend this as a stop on the GGW.

Ideally suited for walkers on the Great Glen Way. A very warm welcome from the hosts and a spotless en-suite room with excellent power shower. The hosts very kindly fed us , at short notice , and the ginger cake is well worth tasting. The stay set us up nicely for our third day of walking. Many thanks.
