Cuil Bay, Ardgour hills beyond

This view of Cuil Bay was taken from the junction of the road into Cuil, perhaps the road that runs to the houses of South Cuil. The hill is the background is Garbh Bheinn.

Cuil Bay is a small bay in Loch Linnhe. It lies in between the settlements of Duror and Keils and the River Duror empties out into the bay. The Ardgour area is bounded by Loch Eil to the north, Loch Shiel to the west and Loch Linnhe to the east. The highest peak is Sgurr Dhomhnuill at 2915ft.

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.
