Sròn is the Scottish Gaelic word for nose and is the name of some hills in the Scottish Highlands. Before the abolition of the acute accent in Scottish Gaelic, it was sometimes spelt as srón

The name Sròn is often applied to the pointy hill or promontory that forms the edge of a mountain massive and that is indeed a bit "nose"-shaped.

As such, the Sròns are often not the highest hilltops; in fact only one of the 284 Munros is called Sròn: Sròn a' Choire Ghairbhmarker ("the nose of the rough corrie"), located west of Loch Lochymarker.

Sròn also appears in names of towns (often anglicized as Stron), such as Strontianmarker (Sròn an t-Sìtheinn), the nose of the fairies (Sìth), and Stranraermarker, (An t-Sròn Reamhar) the fat nose.
