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.



Please do consider leaving a donation, spending some money at the tea rooms and gift shops or take out a membership to help support our heritage.

During the weekend there is a yearly membership offer. Those who take out a new annual membership to Historic Scotland on either of the free days will receive 6 months membership free. This gives you unlimited access to all the Historic Scotland properties.
