Clenamacrie (Glenamarchie) Stone, near Oban

This Early Christian cross slab, known as the Clenamachrie (Glenamachrie) Stone, used to stand in an ancient burial ground next to Clenamacrie Farm, to the east of Oban. It is now part of the National Museums of Scotland's collection. This photograph of the stone was taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson.

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
