Ruined cottage, Inveriggan, Glencoe

This photograph, taken by M.E.M. Donaldson in the first half of the 20th century, shows a ruined cottage at Inveriggan, Glencoe, with Bidean nam Bian and Aonach Eagach behind.

Glencoe runs approximately 10 miles west from Rannoch Moor to the shores of Loch Leven. The north side is dominated by the Aonach Eagach ridge, often considered the most challenging scramble on mainland Scotland. The lower south side is dominated by Bidean nam Bian with Buachaille Etive Beag, stretching back to Glen Etive, and Buachaille Etive Mòr on the upper south side. The area is very popular with hill walkers and climbers.

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.
