Welcome to our family run hotel in Strontian
Michelle and James run a friendly small highland hotel/bed and breakfast which has one of the best panoramic loch and mountain views in Lochaber. The Strontian Hotel was built in the early 19th Century and was formally the Mine Manager’s House back in 1820. It has been modernised and renovated since then though!
Under the same roof is the Bothy Bar and Restaurant which has just recently being re-vamped! The owner – Jody, tempts you with wonderful traditional Scottish or International cuisine, with a special focus on local produce. An intimate bar offers a great selection of quality Scottish Whisky, local Real Ales and a wide variety of Gins. Sit outside or in and enjoy some gourmet bar food and amazing views through the large glass windows across the Loch.
If you have a four legged friend with you we now also have tables in the extended bar area where you enjoy the cosy fire and local banter.
Day trips, dogs and cycling
For those that want to stay connected there is free WIFI and we can help with booking and planning most of your day trips whether it be to see the old ruins of Castle Tioram, hiring a self drive boat or doing a guided wildlife tour. We are in an ideal location for those travelling to and from the Isle of Mull or on to the Isle of Skye via the local Calmac Ferries, as well as a climb up Ben Nevis.
We are dog lovers and will cater for small well behaved dogs in some of our rooms for a small charge per night. We are an ideal base from which to explore the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, it’s beautiful beaches and ancient woodlands. For wildlife lovers come and see the Big 5 of Scotland ! You can decide what the Big 5 are but for us it has to be the Otter, Golden and White Tail Eagle, Pine Martens and the lovely seals. You may be lucky and even get to see the Wild Cat.
For those cyclists amongst you we can place your cycles in a safe secure location and offer drying facilities too. And not to forget the fishermen – we can assist with permits as James is a keen fisherman too.
We are just 25 miles from Fort William and Ben Nevis and just thirty minutes to the Ferries across to Mull too.
So come and enjoy our relaxing atmosphere and unwind in our comfortable Scottish Hotel offering excellent accommodation. We look forward to meeting you.
