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 Grand Prix World Snooker Tour ranking event at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre will be televised by BBC Sport with live television coverage.


Snooker stars who will come to The Granite City include Stephen Hendry, Graeme Dott (2006 World Champion when he beat Peter Ebdon in May), Ronnie O'Sullivan. Ken Doherty, Steve Davis, Ding Junhui and John Higgins, the current title holder.


Tickets can be bought at the Aberdeen Box Office.


The Grand Prix World Snooker Tour ranking event has been played in Preston, Derby, Reading, Bournemouth, Telford and Sunderland.

This year's Scottish event has been organised by a public sector partnership which involved Event Scotland, Aberdeen City Council and the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) with an investment package of 80,000 and the provision of the AECC to secure the event for Scotland and Aberdeen.
