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 Castle was owned by the Ogilvies Earls of Findlater. The third Earl had a bit of a temper and flew into uncontrollable rages. During one rage he murdered his friend. The Earl then committed suicide by cutting his throat. His remorseful spirit is said to haunt the buildings. Footsteps have been heard in areas where no-one is present and appearances have been sighted in the area that used to be the library and the church rooms.
