St John's Church, Ballachulish

St John's Church, Ballachulish, was built in 1842 and consecrated in 1844. The church's altar vessels are inscribed 'Parish of Appin, 1723' and are said to have been used for communion by the Jacobite troops at the Battle of Culloden in 1745. This photograph of the church dates from the first half of the 20th century.

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.
