Burnet Rose is a small shrub found on sand dunes and grass lands such as machair or heath land. The stems have spiny bristles, there are small white flowers in the summer and purple-black hips in the autumn and the leaves are a dark green. The plant is spread by suckers to form large patches.

Mary Ethel Muir Donaldson was born in 1876 and came to the Highlands around 1908. She travelled extensively round the north and west Highlands writing and taking photographs. She died in 1958. This photograph is part of her collection
