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.

A natural way of reducing the rank tussock vegetation found at the RSPB Loch of Strathbeg at Crimond, Aberdeenshire was introduced in 2011. This was eight Koik foals who are now grazing on the wetlands which means the RSPB staff no longer need to use heavy machinery.
