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.

It was commissioned by Muse Developments and Aviva Investors.

The leopard was used because it features two leopards in the Aberdeen City coat of arms. This dates back to when they were gifted to the City by King James I for when the City underwrote his expenses when he was held captive in England.

It is 5 metres tall and weighs 2 tonnes. The steel column is 10 metres. Each fragment of steel were individually wielded and it opened to public viewing from the 3 November 2017.

The Aberdeen leopard has been named Poised by the artist.
