Lochside view, Loch Linnhe

This photograph, taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson, shows a view from the shores of a loch, probably Loch Linnhe, in west central Scotland.

Loch Linnhe, a large sea loch, separates the peninsulas of Morvern and Ardgour in the west from the districts of Appin, Benderloch and Lochaber in the east, and forms a southern extension to the Great Glen. At its northern end is Fort William and the entrance to the Caledonian Canal.

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 area. She died in a nursing home in Edinburgh in 1958 and was buried in Oban
