I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.




Union Street Aberdeen Christmas Lights


Road closures for the Aberdeen Union Street Christmas lights switch on parade involve routes from Harlaw Academy at Albyn Place, Union Street and the Castlegate.

As darkness falls the Xmas lights will be switched on through Union Street and the parade will take place with festive and carnival characters, street entertainment and musicians. The parade, which forms part of the Aberdeen Winter Festival, is usually themed and celebrities include the HMT pantomime stars and the Lord Provost. As it passes each overhead light it will be switched on. Once the lights are switched on Aberdeen University students will follow in their carnival floats and raise a collection for the students charities campaign.
