Harta Corrie, Glen Sligachan, Skye

This view, probably of Harta Corrie in Glen Sligachan, Skye, was photographed in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson. Glen Sligachan runs for eight miles south from the Sligachan Hotel to the sea at Camasunary, near Elgol and serves as a dividing line between the Black Cuillin, to the west of the Glen, and the Red Cuillin, to the east. The name comes from the Gaelic for 'shelly place'.



Harta Corrie, on the western side of Glen Sligachan, is the site of the last clan battle between the MacDonalds and MacLeods in 1601. It is said that the bodies of the slain were piled round the base of a huge rock called the 'Bloody Stone'.



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.



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
