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.

Olympic Torch Relay Route

The Olympic torch relay route for Aberdeenshire will come from Morayshire and travel through Crathie, Ballater, Dinnet, Kincardine o Neil, Banchory and Drumoak on Monday 11 June 2012. The Aberdeen Olympic torch relay route on Tuesday 12 June 2012 will be Peterculter, Bieldside, Cults and the City Centre. The Olympic torch relay route then heads to Stonehaven and through to Montrose in Angus. There will be an Olympic torch evening celebration event on Monday 11 June.

Other Scottish places to have the honour of displaying the Olympic flame include Edinburgh, Glasgow, Orkney and Shetland. Olympic Torchbearers from the local area will have the honour of carrying the Olympic flame. It is not yet known who will carry the Aberdeen Olympic torch though there can be more than one Olympic torchbearer for the Aberdeen route. AboutAberdeen think that Aberdonian swimmer David Carry could represent the sporting population of Aberdeen whilst singer Fiona Kennedy would make a great representative for Aberdeen culture.

Confirmed Olympic Torch bearers from the Aberdeenshire and North East of Scotland region include 14 year old Ciara Ennis from Huntly who was nominated by mum for her charity fundraising work.
