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.




Sponsored by Aberdeen Standard Investments, the Aberdeen Boat Race is now in its 23rd year and is often hailed as the Scottish equivalent to the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.

Last yearís race saw the University of Aberdeen triumph in a time of 7 minutes 3.4 seconds, winning by four lengths and ending Robert Gordon Universityís five-year winning streak. The University of Aberdeen also claimed the titles in the accompanying alumni and second crew races, marking the first ever clean sweep in the eventís history.
