Castle Fraser Photograph and information about visiting Castle Fraser in Aberdeenshire Scotland
Castle Fraser Aberdeenshire is a Z plan building with two stunning towers. The architect was I Bel, the Aberdonian master mason.
Modern visitors can enjoy the large park land, grounds and tour around the inside of the building. There is plenty of parking, toilets, a restaurant and a picnic area. There is no disabled access to the top floors because of the narrow staircases. Instead the National Trust for Scotland
has provided a digital screen that gives a 360 degree view taken from the tower.

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.

It is said to be haunted by a Princess who was murdered in The Green Room. Her body was dragged down the stairs and to this day bloodstains appear on the hearth and the stairs. Though these are scrubbed clean, they reappear. Staff and visitors have also heard piano music and voices from the hall, though no-one was there. Another ghost is said to be that of Lady Blanche Drummond who died in 1874. She appears dressed in a long black gown.
It is located at Sauchen, near Inverurie and the post code for your sat nav is AB51 7LD. Telephone +44 (0)1330 833463

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."
