Kentallen, Ardsheal Estate

This photograph, taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson, was possibly taken in Kentallen, near Ballachulish, Argyll, part of the 800-acre Ardsheal Estate, home to one of the oldest natural woodlands in Scotland.

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, but was buried in Oban.
