Lochan in Glencoe

Glencoe runs approximately 10 miles west from Rannoch Moor to the shores of Loch Leven. The north side is dominated by the Aonach Eagach ridge, often considered the most challenging scramble on mainland Scotland. The lower south side is dominated by Bidean nam Bian with Buachaille Etive Beag, stretching back to Glen Etive, and Buachaille Etive Mòr on the upper south side. The area is very popular with hill walkers and climbers.

This photograph, taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson, shows a lochan, or river pool, in Glencoe, with Bidean nam Bian behind.

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
