Strontian River

The Strontian River is a typical West Coast spate system approximately ten kilometres in length.

The river flows adjacent to the Ariundle National Nature Reserve renowned for its ancient oak woods, mosses, liverworts and lichens. At Strontian the river discharges into Loch Sunart, a Special Area of Conservation primarily designated for its Atlantic oak woods and otter populations.  

This is an interesting small river with a selection of pools which are easily accessed from a network of footpaths adjacent to the riverbank.

In common with many other west coast rivers there has been a dramatic decline in returning migratory fish. A fisheries restoration project is now under way to restore salmon and sea trout back to the densities that the river once held.
