River Affric

The River Affric rises in the foothills of Aonach Meadhoin, one of the Five Sisters of Kintail. It flows north through Glen Affric into Lochs Affric and Beinn a' Mheadhoin before joining the Abheinn Deabhag to form the River Glass, just southwest of Fasnakyle. This photograph of the River Affric dates from the first half of the 20th century. It was taken 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
