Cuil Bay, Eilean Balnagowan, Loch Linnhe, hills of Kingairloch

This photograph is taken from the South Cuill part of the Ardsheal Hill. It shows Eilean Balnagowan and the mouth of the River Duror. In the foreground is the stone dyke between South Cuil and Inshaig Farm. The Invernahyle boat can also be seen in the mouth of the River Duror.

Loch Linnhe is a large sea loch on the west coast of Scotland. It separates the Morvern and Ardgour peninsulas from Appin and Benderloch. Loch Linnhe stretches for approximately 22 miles from northeast to southwest and opens out into the Firth of Lorn. Its narrowest point is at the Corran Narrows and it is six miles wide at its widest point. At its northern end is Fort William and the entrance to the Caledonian Canal. At its southern end is Eilean Balnagowan which lies to the south west of Cuil Bay.

The hills of Kingairloch can be seen in the background of this photograph. Kingairloch covers a deer forest, estate and estate house and a small township at the head of Loch a' Choire.

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
