Mackenzie's Cairn, Ceanncnoc bridge

Roderick Mackenzie was the son of an Edinburgh goldsmith who fought as an officer in Bonnie Prince Charlie's army. It was often commented that Mackenzie bore an uncanny likeness to the Prince. In the summer of 1746, after the defeat at Culloden, government soldiers cornered a group of Jacobites, including the Prince and Mackenzie, in Glen Moriston. Mackenzie was shot and as he died he cried 'Alas you have killed your prince'. This mistaken identity caused the search for the Prince to be scaled back and he was able to escape. This memorial cairn to Roderick Mackenzie can be found by the side of the A887 through Glen Moriston. His grave, on the other side of the road, on the banks of the River Moriston, has been made accessible by the work of local historic societies and the Clan Mackenzie.

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.
