Aberdeen Road Trips
There is so much to see and do during the many Aberdeen road trips and below we give you some that take in the sights of the City and Aberdeenshire such as the gardens, parks, castles and harbours.

Our first Aberdeen road trip has been compiled by Visit Scotland editor Annierose Knox for the Inspires by Avis blog. She shares her 3 day travels through the historical streets such as Old Aberdeen
in which she says:
Venture northwards to cobbled streets of Old Aberdeen. Not to sound like a broken record or anything, but the buildings in Aberdeen really are incredible. Here, you’ll find yourself staring up at majestic university buildings and imagining life as a student back when Scotland’s third oldest university was founded in 1495. The area is dotted with various student haunts, budget eateries and numerous artisan coffee shops to duck into for a flat white.
She then drives to Footdee
and the Castlegate
before taking in our museums
such as The Tolbooth
Annierose then drives through the coastline and onto our many castles, including the picturesque Craigievar Castle
and the well-known Royal Family Deeside retreat of Balmoral Castle

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
