River in south east Morvern

The Morvern peninsula can be found in the Lochaber area. It is located to the south of the Ardnamurchan peninsula bounded by Loch Linnhe, the Sound of Mull and Loch Sunart. The main settlements of Morvern are Lochaline, where there is a short ferry crossing to Fishnish on the island of Mull, and Fiunary. The highest points are Fuar Bheinn, 2798ft, and Beinn Mheadhoin, 2423ft.

M.E.M. 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. One of her favourite locations was the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and it was there she settled, at Sanna, in 1927.

Between 1912 and 1949 Miss Donaldson produced many books on the social history and customs of the North and West Highlands. 'Wanderings in the Western Highlands and Islands' and 'Further Wanderings - Mainly in Argyll' are two of her best known works and both are illustrated with her own photographs. She died in a nursing home in Edinburgh in 1958, and was buried in Oban
