Standing Stone at Tarbert, Jura

This photograph shows a large standing stone that can be found near the roadside at Tarbert on the island of Jura. Jura sits to the east of Islay and the two islands are only separated by a narrow stretch of water, the Sound of Islay. Jura has a population of approximately 190 people and over 6000 deer.

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
