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.




Classes are £4 per session per session for juniors and £5 per session for adults and are from 5 years to Adult. You will need to pay a yearly registration and insurance fee to become licensed with the Shi-Gaku-Kan Shotogun Karate Dojos Karate Clubs, but there are no monthly fees.


The instructors are child orientated and make the classes great fun for the children in a very friendly way, making this a great way to introduce young children as young as 5 to the world of karate.


Classes are run by Sensei Mark (5th Dan) and Libby (4th Dan) Donaghy and black belted students. All instructors are first aid certified, registered at the Scottish Karate Board and are checked by the Police for Child Protection.
