Cross, St Bride's Episcopal Church, Onich

St Bride's Episcopal Church at Onich near Ballachulish was built in 1874.The first incumbent at St Bride's was the Reverend J R A Chinnery-Haldane. He became Bishop of Argyll and The Isles in 1883 and died at Alltshellach in 1906. This photograph dates from the first half of the 20th century and shows the reverend's grave, marked by a crucifix. The crucifix is a replica of the Oronsay Cross which stands outside Oronsay Priory.

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 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
