Strictly Come Dancing Professionals Aberdeen AECC

Book early! May 12th Strictly Come Dancing The Professionals at the AECC Buy Tickets.

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.

Galloway Forest Park

These photographs show what we saw around the shorter route. These include Bruntis Loch, water lilies, a beautiful bridge and though we weren't quick enough with the camera red squirrels make appearances.

The Forestry Commission recommend the area as the best place to watch the Perseids meteor shower. It is named after a point called a radiant in the Constellation Perseus. This Dark Sky Park event usually occurs from the end of July to the middle of August when our planet Earth passes through the remains of a tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet. As the debris chunks burn up they look like a shower of shooting stars.
