Gairnshiel Lodge Ghosts


The History Of Gairnshiel Lodge



Situated just outside Ballater in Royal Deeside, Gairnshiel Lodge was a former hunting lodge used by Queen Victoria. The original Lodge was built in 1746 with further extensions thereafter.

Other members of the Royal Family who have used the Lodge for hunting include King George V, King George VI and the Duke and Duchess of York (later to become Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother).

Gairnshiel Lodge is now a family run hotel.

The Lodge is situated on the banks of the River Gairn.

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 Ghosts Of Gairnshiel Lodge



There have been sightings of the spirit of an old woman, who is thought to be a former owner of the Lodge.

The noise of marching men and the moving of horses and carts has been heard outside the Lodge, though nothing can be seen. The old military road, used during the Jacobite Risings, used to run past the Lodge. It is thought these are soldier ghosts.
