Looking East over Loch Cluanie

Loch Cluanie is a reservoir in the Garry-Moriston Hydro-Electric Scheme. It lies in Glen Cluanie beside the A87 road. The River Moriston flows from the loch and the Cluanie Dam is at the eastern end. The construction of the dam (675m long and 40m high) raised the level of Loch Cluanie by 29 metres.

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
