Looking over to Spidean Mialach and Gleouriach

The mountains of Spidean Mialach and Gleouraich stand side by side, forming a ridge on the north side of Loch Quoich. The north side of the ridge is marked by a number of corries while the south side is marked by smooth, grassy slopes. Gleouraich reaches a height of 3396ft and Spidean Mialach a height of 3268ft. This makes both mountains Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000ft in height).

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
