Grounds of Ardchonnel Castle, Loch Awe

Ardchonnel Castle on Innis Chonnell Island, Loch Awe, was a former stronghold of the Clan Campbell. It is said that from there the clan often sent forth their famous slogan or defiant war-shout, 'It's a far cry to Lochow' (Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland, 1882-1885, by Francis H. Groome). This photograph of the castle grounds dates from the first half of the 20th century.

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.
