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 Raemoir House Hotel Banchory


Raemoir Hotel The hoteliers and owners of the Raemoir House Hotel are David and Verity Webster who purchased the building in 2006. Since then the hotel has undergone a six figure upgrade which has increased visitors and guests to the hotel and seen a 34% increase in revenue. This promising beginning has been accomplished by hosting a series of prestigious musical events featuring world famous musicians, initiating an extensive hotel refurbishment and new staff appointments. Read about such concerts.

David Webster commented:

“We had already made a success of the four star Castleton House Hotel near Glamis and we were ready for our next project. We heard there was an opportunity at Raemoir House Hotel and we couldn’t resist. We took over Raemoir on Valentines Day this year and haven’t looked back. It was a much bigger project than Castleton and although it’s been hard work, we are enjoying every minute.”

Raemoir House


Since the new ownership, the 16th Century 4 star hotel and restaurant has hosted its first Midsummer Prom, featuring the internationally acclaimed Maestro Iain Sutherland, and has undergone a six-figure upgrade, including bedroom refurbishments, the entire re-carpeting of the ground floor and alterations to the hotel’s 2 AA rosette restaurant. The restaurant, which is under the direction of accomplished Head Chef Grant Walker, is now housed in what was originally the hotel’s drawing room, allowing guests to appreciate the hotel’s stunning parkland views. Verity commented:

“As much as attracting visitors from further afield, Raemoir is primarily a welcoming hotel and restaurant for the local community to enjoy as well. We are thrilled with the results.”


Raemoir Hotel Bedroom In the new drawing room, recent features include antique portraits of owner Verity Webster’s family dating back to 1760 and the late Andy Stewart’s elegant Broadwood cottage grand piano. Having also recently purchased the lease for shooting, the hotel can now offer 80-100 bird days in the grounds directly beside the hotel itself. David is a qualified BASC sporting shotgun coach and therefore can advise on matters of gun fit and shooting technique. David and Peter Ferguson (Raemoir’s Hotel Manager) have worked together in other top sporting country house hotels, specifically Sunlaws for the Duke of Roxburgh.


The hotel plans to host a number of musical events again this year and can now announce the return of the Scottish Festival Orchestra on Saturday 9th June 2007.


Award winning hoteliers, David and Verity Webster are not only the proprietors of the Raemoir House Hotel in Banchory but also the prestigious Castleton House Hotel in Angus. Read more at their website at castletonglamis.co.uk which are both four star hotels.
