Go Ape

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.

Their catchphrase of this tree top assault course is Live Life Adventurously and this adventure park for children and adults has a nationwide reputation for providing an exciting time for those who enjoy the challenge of climbing rope ladders, going down zip wires, negotiating swings and relishing their special skateboard zip wire.
