Flora MacDonald Monument, Inverness

This photograph of the Flora MacDonald Monument on Castle Hill, Inverness, dates from the first half of the 20th century and was taken by M.E.M. Donaldson. Designed by Andrew Davidson, a sculptor from Inverness, the monument was erected in 1899 and shows the heroine looking towards the west. Captain Henderson Macdonald bequeathed £1000 towards the cost of the monument.

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
