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 Banchory Show 2014 takes place on Saturday TBA July.

Primary school football, Highland dancing and the Young Farmers tug of war tend to take place after lunch. The pipe band performs prior to the parade of the livestock.


Afternoon entertainment varies each year and has included the UKFMX motocross display team which looked magnificent set against the backdrop of the Royal Deeside trees.
