Loch Etive Head

This view of Loch Etive Head shows Stob Dubh, Beinn Ceitlein in the centre and Buachaille Etive Mór (The Great Herdsman), behind. Loch Etive is fed from the north east by the River Etive and eventually meets the Firth of Lorn and the open sea at Connel. The north end of the Loch is dominated by the view up Glen Etive. In the 1700s there was a track down the south side of the loch to Taynuilt which was used as a major access route across the Highlands.

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
