Torry Its History and People Book Aberdeen Author Gordon Bathgate


Information about Aberdeen author Gordon Bathgate who wrote the book Torry - Its History and People and is a Waves FM Peterhead Radio Presenter


In 2006 Gordon Bathgate published a book called Torry - Its History and People. It was a huge success and sold out its first print run of 1500 copies. More editions were printed and the book remains a top seller in Aberdeen bookshops like Waterstones or it can be purchased directly from online bookshop Amazon.

As the title suggests Gordon's 134 paged book is about the area of Torry in Aberdeen throughout the years and narrates tales of some of the well known people and lesser known characters. Torry Its History and People also talks about the days when Torry was a busy fishing village and is illustrated throughout with photographs of Torry and photos of the fisherfolk.

It was published by Girdleness Publishing. Gordon writes part time and his full time job is with Langstane Press. He still remains a Torry loon, living at Girdleness Road.

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.
