Auchtertyre Hill, from Ardtintoul

This view across Loch Alsh to Auchtertyre Hill, as seen from Ardintoul, was photographed by M.E.M. Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century.

Loch Alsh is a west coast sea loch between the mainland and the island of Skye. It opens out to the sea in a north-westerly direction via Kyleakin and southerly via Kylerhea. The two main settlement areas on the shores of Loch Alsh are Kyle of Lochalsh and Balmacara.

The photographer, 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. Between 1912 and 1949 she 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
