Loch Scavaig

Loch Scavaig is a sea loch on the south west coast of Skye. It opens into the Cuillin Sound with the island of Soay to the west and the Strathaird peninsula to the east. It is known for its sudden and violent squalls but it is popular with tourists. The loch looks into the horseshoe of the Cuillin ridge and a boat trip across Loch Scavaig to Loch Coruisk, within the horseshoe, has long been popular with tourists.

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
