Welcome to our family run hotel in Strontian
The Strontian Hotel is a friendly small highland hotel/bed and breakfast which has one of the best panoramic loch and mountain views in Lochaber. Built in the early 19th Century, it was formally the mine manager’s house back in 1820. It has been modernised and renovated since then though, offering a great place to stay for short breaks and overnight stops or luxuriously longer escapes.
If you wish to discuss any booking and Covid-19 type of measures we have in place do please get in touch. Please also check our Sunart Apartment should you wish to consider self-catering as an option.
The Bothy Bar & Restaurant
Under the same roof as the Strontian Hotel is the Bothy Bar and Restaurant – the perfect place to enjoy a little Highland hospitality during your stay. Jody, the bar and restaurant owner, 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, there are tables in the extended bar area where you can 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.
The hotel is 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 Eagles, 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 and they are also available at the Post Office nearby.
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 at The Strontian Hotel, where you can enjoy a truly authentic Highland experience. We look forward to meeting you.
Julie-Ann and Martin Shipley, your hosts at The Strontian Hotel.
