Native pine woods, Glen Cannich

This photograph, taken in the first half of the 20th century by M.E.M. Donaldson, shows native pine woods with mountains behind, possibly in Glen Cannich, one of three west-running glens in Strathglass. Cannich River runs through Glen Cannich, leading to Loch Mullardoch and the largest Hydro-Electric dam in Scotland, completed in the 1950s. At the time of its construction, care was taken to minimise the impact on the surrounding countryside.

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.
