Thatched building by stream, An Sgurr in background

A photograph showing a thatched building beside a stream on the island of Eigg. An Sgurr, or The Sgurr of Eigg, can be seen in the background. An Sgurr is the highest hill on Eigg and reaches a height of 1289ft.

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.
