Strontian is the main village in Sunart, an area in western Lochaber, Highland, Scotland, on the A861 road. It lies on the north shore of Loch Sunart, close to the head of the loch. In the hills to the north of Strontian Thomas Charles Hope discovered the mineral strontianite, from which the element strontium was first isolated.
The village name in Gaelic, Sròn an t-Sìthein, translates as the nose [ie. 'point'] of the fairy hill, meaning a knoll or low round hill inhabited by the mythological sídhe.
