Strontian is a small village close to the head of Loch Sunart. It hosts two hotels, a number of B&Bs, a bunk house and a small, quiet campsite.
Loch Sunart is the longest and one of the most beautiful Lochs in Scotland. Starting just outside the small village of Strontian, its waters line the southern coastline of the stunning Ardnamurchan Peninsula until it reaches the open sea at Ardnamurchan point, the most westerly point on the UK mainland. The loch plays host to numerous islands which add to its character and are ideal for the canoeist to explore.
