Glen Sannox, Isle of Arran

This is a photograph of Glen Sannox on the Isle of Arran. From mountains at its western end the glen extends in a north easterly direction to the village of Sannox and Sannox Bay on the east coast of the island. Baryte, used in the manufacture of paint and paper, was mined here in the 19th century.

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
