Produced in collaboration with the National Library of Scotland, this new calendar features more of the most beautiful maps of Scotland ever made. From the very earliest representations of Scotland in the second century AD, through the first printed maps of the 16th century and the achievement of the Ordnance Survey in the 1920s and 1930s to the most recent satellite imagery, these images tell the story of a nation.


Scotland is home to a staggering array of wildlife, from the iconic red deer and Highland cow to the magnificent sea eagle and bottle-nosed dolphin.

This calendar features not only a beautiful selection of animals themselves but also their natural habitats, which are some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.


This calendar features distinctive full-colour paintings by one of Scotland’s best-loved authors and artists and is a wonderful celebration of the extraordinary natural beauty of the Hebrides throughout the seasons.

Mairi Hedderwick’s drawings, produced over a period of more than forty years, expertly capture the unique character and diversity of Hebridean land and seascapes, from wind-swept moors and dramatic cliffs to rolling hills and secluded woods.
