View from head of Loch Awe

Loch Awe lies south east of Oban and at almost 24 miles (38km) long, is the longest freshwater loch in Scotland. It is famous in fishing circles for its wild brown trout. The loch has many ancient crannogs and the ruins of Inishail Chapel and Kilchurn and Finharn Castles can also be found there. This photograph shows the south western view from the head of the loch.

The photographer, Mary Ethel Muir 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. Between 1912 and 1949 she produced many books on the social history and customs of the area. She died in a nursing home in Edinburgh in 1958, but was buried in Oban.
