Probably Loch Craignish from Corranmore

Loch Craignish lies on the mid-Argyll coast, north of the Crinan Canal and south of Oban. Its waters open to the Sound of Jura. Several islands lie within the loch, the largest being Eilean Righ, Eilean Mhic Chrion and Island Macaskin. The village of Ardfern and the hamlets of Corranmore and Kirkton lie on its northwestern shore. This view, probably of Loch Craignish, 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.
