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.


From the Castlegate all the way up Union Street there are Christmas lights hung between the shops.

Each December Sunday the lower half of Union Street is closed to traffic whilst festive entertainment takes to the street.

Throughout Aberdeenshire many householders show displays in their gardens and on their houses. Each garden and house may have different collection boxes for charities. Some of the best displays and ChristmasLights can be found at:

Ashgrove Road Aberdeen
School Road Peterhead
Sunnyside Avenue Aberdeen


Such charity collections include contributions to the Voluntary Service Aberdeen.


More activities to take children.

Peterhead Christmas Lights

The 2008 Peterhead Christmas Lights will be switched on Thursday 27 November. The day will see street entertainment from 4:30pm which includes local DJ Tommy James, the Young at Heart Group, Peterhead Choral Society and Waves Radio. Footballer Neale Cooper will switch on the Peterhead Christmas tree lights.

It was feared that the Peterhead Christmas Lights would not be on display in 2007 after they were vandalised in 2006 only hours after going up. Fortunately cash was donated from the Common Good Fund in Peterhead so that shoppers could once more enjoy some Christmas cheer. 5000 was given from the fund by Peterhead Councillors to the Peterhead Christmas Lights fundraiser Mr Davie Roy who is head of Light the Toon.

Fundraising for the 2008 Peterhead Christmas Lights will start in January 2008




Elgin Christmas Lights

Visitors to Elgin in 2007 may be forgiven for thinking Christmas is celebrated throughout the year. In an effort to save about 4000 a year the Elgin Town Centre Benevolent Trust have kept up the Elgin Christmas Lights all year round to save the cost of taking them down in January and putting them back up in December. This controversial cost cutting scheme has been praised and also criticised by the people of Elgin. The Elgin Town Centre Benevolent Trust needs to raise approximately 30,000 a year to display the Elgin Christmas lights. This initiative saves them the fee that they have to pay to Moray Council to take down the lights.
