Man in snow at Sanna Bay, Ardnamurchan

This photograph of a man standing in a snow-covered landscape was taken by M.E.M. (Mary Ethel Muir) Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century. The location is Sanna Bay, Ardnamurchan, where Miss Donaldson built her home using local labour and traditional methods and materials. In 1928 she published her account of the building of 'Sanna Bheag' in 'Country Life'.

M.E.M. 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. One of her favourite locations was the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and it was there she settled, at Sanna, in 1927.

Between 1912 and 1949 Miss Donaldson 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
