Female figure on foreshore, St Columba's Bay, Iona

This photograph shows a female figure standing on the foreshore at St Columba's Bay, Iona. The photograph was taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson, and the figure may be her companion, Isobel Bonus.

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. As well as being her companion, Isabel Bonus also produced many line drawings for Miss Donaldson's publications. Miss Donaldson died in a nursing home in Edinburgh in 1958, but was buried in Oban.
