Loch Beannacharan in Glen Strathfarrar. Sgurr na Lapaich beyond

Loch Beannacharan is a small but deep loch found in Glen Strathfarrar. It is one of the lochs that the River Farrar flows through on its way east. The size of the loch was increased with the building of the Beannacharan Dam a short distance from the natural outlet of the loch.

Sgurr na Lapaich can be seen in the distance of this photograph. The mountain lies to the west of Cannich and reaches a height of 3773ft, making it the highest mountain in the area. The Gaelic name can be translated as 'the rocky peak of the bog'.

M.E.M. 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.
