Postman Sandy MacPherson, Moidart

This photograph, taken by M.E.M. Donaldson, probably in the 1920s, shows postman Sandy MacPherson and his pony. Sandy's route was along tracks from Lochailort to Glenuig in Moidart, Inverness-shire. Glenuig was a remote coastal settlement and public access by road was only made available in 1966.

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
