Travel guide to Strontian
With only about 400 population Strontian can hardly claim the status of a metropolis but, if you’ve come over the Corran ferry and you’re heading for Mull or Ardnamurchan, it’s the nearest thing to a metropolis you’re likely to find! It has a hotel, shops and a petrol station!
It is mainly white painted and guidebooks stress its apparent modernity. It’s situated near the head of [sea] Loch Sunart which stretches west to Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly on the mainland. The A861 runs through Strontian, being a long loop from the A830 from Fort William to Mallaig. Th A884 runs south from it at the very head of the loch to reach Lochaline and the short car ferry to Mull. The only other road is unclassified and runs north to reach the tiny township of Polloch on Loch Shiel.
Strontian was a centre of lead mining but is far better known from the discovery of another element, strontium.
There is a fair chance of seeing otters either here or in the stream leading to Loch Sunart. [edit text]  [editors]
