Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Churches and Cathedrals




Click each Church and Cathedral to learn more about its history and to tour around it:


Crathie Church

Kirk Of St Nicholas Aberdeen

St Machar's Cathedral

Deer Abbey - this is a ruinous former Cistercian House dating back to the year 1219. It is now maintained by Historic Scotland and worth a visit. The site is very peaceful and gives visitors great views of Aberdeenshire and the site even has a monk ghost! More info and view our photos.








The Drummer Boy


The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.


Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.


Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.






In the neighbouring county of Angus lies Arbroath Abbey that was run by monks of the Roman Catholic church until the reformation. Surviving parts of Arbroath Abbey was then used as a Manse for the Church and the ruins are now maintained by Historic Scotland.
