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.


The Mercure Ardoe House Hotel Aberdeen & Spa dates back to 1878 when the house was built for Alexander Ogston and his family. Ardoe House is a fine example of a 19th century castellated mansion house. The house was built incorporating many design features inspired by nearby Balmoral Castle. Blended in the modern facilities are the historic wood panelling, grand staircase and fireplaces. Ardoe House was later sold and converted into a Hotel in 1947 and lovelying added too over the later years to make Mercure Ardoe House Hotel and Spa what is is today.

The Ghost Of Ardoe House Hotel



The Hotel has a white lady ghost who is thought to be Katherine Ogston, the wife of Alexander Milne Ogston who was a soap merchant, who purchased the mansion house in 1839. There is a portrait of Katherine on the main stairs and this is where her ghost has been seen.

Others have reported that the ghost is a daughter of a former owner who was raped and became pregnant. She later killed herself and her child.

Christmas Meals

On Christmas day 2007 Ardoe House Hotel manager, Mr Chris Lynch, delivered sixty five gourmet meals to the Aberdeen homeless charity The Cyrenians on Summer Street. The staff wanted to support The Cyrenians after they had their summer ball in September at Ardoe House Hotel. At the time they also generously donated an auction prize of a hotel stay to include a visit to the spa. The Christmas meals allowed The Cyrenians to serve the homeless people a hot meal when usually their Christmas meal would have been a cold buffet. It also means that The Cyrenians can serve the buffet on boxing day increasing the Christmas meals to the homeless of Aberdeen City.
