Stopped in for an evening meal in the Bothy Bar restaurant having seen the location with views over the bay of Strontian River. Decent menu with several vegetarian options and at reasonable prices. We ate the fish and chips and fish pie - both very good. Friendly staff. Need to go back in daylight to appreciate the view - and...

The Strontian Hotel is based at the end of Loch Sunart and if you ask for a room with a view you will see the most beautiful scenery there is, anywhere in the world. This is an old hotel, family run, with a lot of Scottish character. It could perhaps do with a bit of modernisation but to be honest,...

I've just returned from a three-day stay with my husband in the Strontium Hotel, a cosy country house. We were booked into the delightful and re-furbished Suite which had a fabulous view out over Loch Sunart. We were welcomed by Michelle, the owner, although we had arrived early, and personally shown round our suite and public rooms, and made to...

Nice location, friendly and warm, good food. Could possibly do with a lick of paint but suited our purpose fine. The area is great and the views stunning. Not a bad place to stay on the way to the Mallaig ferry.

Hi there Thank you for your review - we have had a lot of visitors looking for the Black Duck and most have been successful. Thank you also for your comment about the lick of paint. It is on the list once the weather warms up a bit. The outside of the Hotel particularly facing the Loch, you can imagine...

I used this hotel as I was twitching the famous Strontain Black Duck. This is a perfect location for twitching the duck. The hotel offers a warm welcome and nice rooms. The pub downstairs was perfect for a good pint & dinner. Breakfast was very good. Would stay there again. My only downside would be I personally thought it was...

I stayed here when working in the area during the off season but there was nothing off about this fine establishment. The hotel was essentially closed but stays open for people who are working in the area. I was warmly and professionally welcomed and shown to my room which was pretty good. Decent bathroom, spacious room with both a TV...

I missed the last ferry to Mull when my flight was delayed. The Ardnamurchan peninsular is stunning, but not packed with B & B. I had a chest infection so didnt fancy sleeping in the car.
