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.

100 mile route: 110 mile route: An epic, remote adventure. If you love a 3,700m climbing challenge you’ll love this journey. Six major climbs rewarded by long flowing descents winding through Scotland’s whisky country. Rolling by distilleries, castles, rivers and lochs this is the connoisseur’s sportive through the best of Highland Scotland.

100 km route: The ‘up River Don and down River Dee’ classic, this ride takes in 1,900m of climbing with mountain views of Lochnagar and the Cairngorms. Spin out through beautiful Donside, then return over the challenging Gairnshiel pass. The reward is one of the best road descents in Scotland – enjoy the view as you fly downhill towards Deeside!
