Glenfinnan Monument, Loch Shiel, Lochaber

This photograph of the Glenfinnan Monument, with Loch Shiel in the background, was taken by M.E.M. Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century.

Prince Charles Edward Stewart (Bonnie Prince Charlie), landed at the north end of Loch Shiel at Glenfinnan on the 19th August 1745 and raised his standard, marking the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. The Glenfinnan Monument was erected by Alexander MacDonald of Glenaladale in 1815 in memory of the clans who had fought and died for the Jacobite cause.

The photographer, Mary Ethel Muir Donaldson, was born in 1876 and came to the Highlands around 1908. She travelled extensively around the North and West Highlands, writing and taking photographs. Between 1912 and 1949 she produced many books on the social history and customs of the North and West Highlands. 'Wanderings in the Western Highlands and Islands' and 'Further Wanderings - Mainly in Argyll' are two of her best known works and both are illustrated with her own photographs. She died in a nursing home in Edinburgh in 1958, and was buried in Oban
