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.

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
