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.



Entertainment includes some thrilling rides from Codonas that will suit all ages from gentle teacup and vehicles rides for youngsters, a giant helter skelter and The Blizzard that spins you around high in the air with daredevil head spinning.

Food stalls in the market area include a hot chestnut stall, well stocked bars with a range of German beers and wines, tasty Bratwurst and Frankfurter sausages.

Visitors will find a wide variety of German style wooden chalets that house different goodies designed to help make your Christmas gift shopping easier. This includes international items as well as daily changing local crafters.

Toilets, including disabled toilets can be found behind the outdoor ice skating rink

Below, in the Union Terrace Gardens, is the fun
Christmas Tree Maze, which, like the Christmas Market, is best viewed when it gets dark and all the twinkling lights brighten the area.
