Rocky shoreline, Loch nan Uamh, Arisaig

Prince Charles Edward Stewart landed on the shores of Loch nan Uamh, Arisaig, in the summer of 1745, in the last attempt to reinstate the exiled Stewarts on the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. After the defeat at Culloden in 1746, the prince went on the run in the Highlands and Islands for five months. He eventually returned to Loch nan Uamh, boarded a frigate, and sailed to safety in France, never to return. Today, a memorial cairn marks the traditional spot of his departure. This rocky shoreline at Loch nan Uamh was photographed by M.E.M. Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century.

Mary Ethel Muir 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.
