Loch Poulary, Lochaber

Loch Poulary is a small expansion of the River Garry between Loch Quoich and Loch Garry, in the Lochaber area, north of the Great Glen. Loch Garry and the River Garry form part of the Garry-Moriston Hydro-Electric Scheme, operational in 1962. The area round Loch Garry is also part of the Caledonian Forest Reserve. This view of Loch Poulary, with Gairich mountain in the distance, 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
