Road through birch woods, probably Glen Affric

Glen Affric runs in a north-east to south-west direction west of Loch Ness and south-west of Cannich and is a designated National Nature Reserve, part of one of the largest continuous tracts of native Scots pine forest in Scotland. The photograph of the glen was taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson.

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, but was buried in Oban.
