We are blessed with many in our area, sadly though the Aberdeen Castle itself is no longer in existence. It once sat proudly in the Castlegate area where a block of flats now reside. However a short drive takes you to many Aberdeenshire Castles and the links below take you to our comprehensive guide to each one:

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.

Other historic buildings in our area include the Georgian house Duff House.
