Carradale Valley

Carradale is a village on the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula, 11 miles north east of Campbeltown. The name, which is derived from Norse, is also found in Carradale Bay, Garden, Point, Forest and Water. There is also the Carradale Estate. In the 19th century it was known as a small resort and fishing harbour and during the 20th century the hills above the village were extensively afforested.

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.
