Colquhonnie Castle and Colquhonnie Hotel Ghosts

The Phantom Piper


Colquhonnie Castle is a ruinous remains of a 16th Century L-Plan Tower of the Forbes of Towie.



The Castle was never fully completed because the three Lairds were all killed during the building work.



One of these Forbes Lairds fell from the Castle in the 1600s and haunts the nearby Colquhonnie Hotel. He is known as The Phantom Piper.

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.
