Sea loch (location unidentified)

A sea loch is normally a salt water loch, mostly surrounded by land but with an outlet to the sea. Famous sea lochs in Scotland are Loch Long, Loch Fyne, Loch Linnhe and Loch Erribol. It is not known where the sea loch in this photograph is.

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
