Ben Hiant seen from Kilchoan

The Ardnamurchan peninsula extends west from Sunart in Argyll. It is separated from the Morvern peninsula by Loch Sunart and from the island of Mull by the Sound of Mull. Between Kilchoan and Glenbeg can be found Ben Hiant. This hill on the peninsula is one of only five which are higher than 1000ft. Ben Hiant reaches a height of 1732ft. Kilchoan is found on the south coast of the peninsula.

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.
