The attractive village of Strontian on the shores of Loch Sunart gave its name to the element strontium, which was first discovered in the nearby lead mines in 1790. These now-abandoned mines also produced most of the lead shot used in the Napoleonic wars. Strontian is the largest settlement in these parts and has a post office/petrol station, shops, hotels, cafe/restaurants, crafts and a high school with community library. Located along the shore Loch Sunart it has a very attractive disposition and provides relatively sheltered anchorages for yachts.

There is a good choice of accommodation and eating out places. About two miles north of the village is the Ariundle Nature Reserve, which offers a pleasant two-hour nature trail through the glen and a 40-minute forest walk.
