Castle Fraser Aberdeenshire is a Z plan building with two stunning towers. The architect was I Bel, the Aberdonian master mason.

Modern visitors can enjoy the large park land, grounds and tour around the inside of the building. There is plenty of parking, toilets, a restaurant and a picnic area. There is no disabled access to the top floors because of the narrow staircases. Instead the National Trust for Scotland has provided a digital screen that gives a 360 degree view taken from the tower.

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.

It is said to be haunted by a Princess who was murdered in The Green Room. Her body was dragged down the stairs and to this day bloodstains appear on the hearth and the stairs. Though these are scrubbed clean, they reappear. Staff and visitors have also heard piano music and voices from the hall, though no-one was there. Another ghost is said to be that of Lady Blanche Drummond who died in 1874. She appears dressed in a long black gown.
