p101-2 Laggan. Forest Lodge Guesthouse offers evening meals & requires 24 hours notice from walkers via email or phone to book this and packed lunches can also be pre ordered.  They will collect guests from Laggan Lock if they arrive there before 4pm (a voluntary contribution towards petrol is greatly appreciated eg £2 per person) and guests will need to call on arrival to Laggan Lock.

The Eagle Barge will still be operational in 2019 if guests wish to eat out (calling the barge is a good idea to check if they will be open on the date required).  

There will no longer be a restaurant at the Great Glen Water Park as the Loch Oich Bar & Restaurant  has closed.


September 2017

p133  Drumnadrochit. The bank at the northern end of the village is now closed and there is no ATM there. The Scotmid still has one.

May 2017

Dogs on Citylink bus.  If you plan to travel to Inverness, park, get the Citylink 19 bus service down the Glen and walk back to your car you cannot do that with a medium or larger sized dog. They don't accept dogs unless secured in a carrier that will fit under your feet on the coach.
