Loch Sunart

Loch Sunart, a sea loch, extends almost 20 miles west from Glen Tarbert and separates the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and Sunart to the north from Morvern in the south. Near the mouth of the loch are the islands of Carna, Risga, Eilean Mòr and Oronsay. This view of Loch Sunart 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. 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
