Prince Charlie's Cave, Ceannacroc, Glenmoriston

Prince Charlie's Cave is found on the Ceannacroc Estate in Glen Moriston. Bonnie Prince Charlie is said to have been sheltered in the cave for five days during the summer of 1746 when he was on the run after the Jacobites' defeat at the Battle of Culloden.

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.
