Dalilea, Loch Shiel

This photograph of a man tending to moored rowing boats at the side of a loch, was taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson. The location is possibly Dalilea, on the shores of Loch Shiel, Inverness-shire.

It is claimed that Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) took shelter at Dalilea before raising his standard at Glenfinnan in 1745. Alasdair MacMaighstir Alasdair, the bard of Clanranald was possibly born at Dalilea around 1700. A large oak tree in the grounds of Dalilea House, is said to have been planted by him.

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
