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.








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.
