Eilean Balnagowan

This photograph is taken from the South Cuill part of the Ardsheal Hill and shows Eilean Balnagowan in the distance. Eilean Balnagowan is a small island which lies in Loch Linnhe on the west coast of Scotland. The island lies off the coast of Appin to the south west of the mouth of Loch Leven and Cuil Bay.

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.
