Riverside view, Glen Garry, Lochaber

Glen Garry, in the Lochaber area, runs from Loch Quoich in the west to Invergarry in the east. Loch Garry, a 7 km long loch in Glen Garry, is fed on the west side by the River Garry (from Loch Quoich) and drains eastwards into Loch Oich. 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 riverside view in the Glen Garry area 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
