Inverey Castle History and Ghost


The History Of Inverey Castle


Inverey Castle is now in ruinous state after being demolished in 1689 after the death of its owner John Farquharson, who was nicknamed the Black Colonel. This occurred following the Battle of Killiecrankie. John Farquharson was a Jacobite who did succeed in defeating an attack upon Braemar Castle.




The Ghosts Of Inverey Castle


John Farquharson was buried in the St Andrew's churchyard at Braemar against his wishes. His widow and children over ruled his wishes. He wanted to be buried at Inverey, alongside his mistress. His coffin is reputed to have voiced its objection by rising from the burial ground three times, until it was interred at Inverey.

The ghost of John Farquharson has been sighted at Braemar Castle.

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.
