Blaven and Loch Slapin

Blaven stands six miles from Broadford, at the head of Loch Slapin, on the island of Skye. At 3044ft Blaven is one of 12 Munros on Skye but is separated from the main Cuillin ridge by Glen Sligachan. The loch in the foreground is Loch Slapin itself, a sea inlet in the south of Skye. It lies to the east of the Strathaird peninsula between Rubha na h-Easgainne and Rubha Suisnish. The settlements of Kilbride, Torrin and Kirkibost all stand on the shore of Loch Slapin.

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.
