The Strontian Hotel is a small family run hotel on the shores of Loch Sunart in the village of Strontian. Offering a luxurious bed and breakfast experience in 6 ensuite rooms with a cosy bar serving whiskies and local dishes. Well placed for exploring The Ardnamurchan Peninsula with walks from the door in the woodlands around Strontian. As well as otters on Loch Sunart you may be lucky enough to spot the elusive American Black Duck which has been seen in the vicinity in recent years.
An enjoyable walk following a gravelled track with good views of the hill lochan, Loch nan Lochan, and ascending to the reservoir at Glen Forslan. Fine hill scenery and the picturesque falls of Glenforslan make this a very pleasant walk. In addition, devil's bit scabious (Succisa patensis), scotch argus (Erebai aethiops) and orange peel fungus (Aleuria aurantia) are abundant in late summer. Some steep ascents and can be boggy in places. This is a 'there and back' walk.
Please refer to local walking guides for details.
