Strath Fillan (Scottish Gaelic: Na Sraithibh) is a strath in west Perthshire named after an 8th-century Irish hermit monk later canonised Saint Fillan. It stretches from Bridge of Orchy (NN300395) to Crianlarich (NN383248) and has long been a major route through the highlands; the A82 road, the West Highland Line, and the West Highland Way long-distance footpath all follow the strath.

The Strathfillan Community Development Trust was formed in 1997. It provides low cost rental housing for local residents and manages amenity woodland.
