Moored boats, Glenborrodale, Loch Sunart

These moored boats, possibly at Glenborrodale Jetty in Loch Sunart, were photographed by M.E.M. Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century.

Glenborrodale is a small settlement on the southern shores of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, by Loch Sunart. Just west of the village is Glenborrodale Castle, once owned by Jesse Boot, founder of the Boots chemist shops. Also nearby is the Glenborrodale RSPB Reserve.

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
