Boats on shore, Kilchoan, Ardnamurchan

This photograph, taken by M.E.M. Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century, shows a sailing boat and two rowing boats drawn up on the shore. The location is probably Kilchoan, on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.

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. One of her favourite locations was the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and it was there she settled, at Sanna, in 1927. She built a home using traditional methods and materials and drew her electricity supply from her own private hydro-electric dam.

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
