This is a high quality desk diary for 2023, featuring a beautiful photograph from the Caledonian Forest in the Highlands of Scotland for every week of the year. It also includes a page for the first week of January 2024, and contains 55 photographs in total. The images depict a wide range of subjects, from mature Scots pines in autumn and winter landscapes in sites such as Glen Affric, Glen Strathfarrar and the Cairngorms National Park, to intimate details of the forest, including birds, flowers, fungi and insects. The date page for each week provides plenty of space to write in daily appointments etc.
The diary measures 149 x 213 mm.
(NB: Due to a change in the printing software, it has unfortunately not been possible to include the notable information, such as bank holidays, the times of the full and new moons, and internationally-significant dates such as World Environment Day, printed in the diary this year. Instead this information is all provided on some accompanying separate sheets of paper).
Price: £18 each, plus post and packing

I have been ordering this diary for my mother for at least 15 years. The photographs are always stunning, the layout is perfect and it is beautifully printed and finished. Alan, please don’t stop producing these – we won’t know what to do without them! Many thanks, Cara Speller

Inspirational photographs. Reminds us every day to look closely and appreciate – from a droplet of dew to a giant tree.

Our year wouldn’t be the same without your week by week photos and inspiration that they provide. I can’t remember when we haven’t had one by our phone where we chart our week with numerous changes made & yet the constant presence of nature in the Highlands. Thank you taking the time to observe nature and share it with us, and all those wonderful names in brackets – how do you remember them?! The diaries make wonderful gifts too.

A really beautiful diary with amazing photographs. Am so thrilled to be able to get an A5 Engagement Diary once again. Shall have one very thrilled Canadian niece – we used to send her one every year until they stopped. Now to treat me to one! Well done Alan and every success with your independent venture.

A fantastic diary, filled with Alan’s amazing photography of the Caledonian Forest. Very inspirational and recommend to anyone who loves trees and nature in general.

I have been using Alan’s superb A5 diaries with tree related inspiring photographs since 2002. Until 2011 the photographs were from forests around the world, now available in Alan’s Forests Forever Calendar. From 2012 the Trees for Life Diary had illustrations from the Caledonian Forest, the focus area for this Conservation Charity. Alan continues to visit and photograph the inspiring Caledonian Forest and now publishes the diary independently. I don’t live locally so the photographs in the diary and Alan’s blogs keep me connected. I look forward each year to logging my own journey in company with the trees.
