The History Of Gairnshiel Lodge
Situated just outside Ballater in Royal Deeside, Gairnshiel Lodge was a former hunting lodge used by Queen Victoria. The original Lodge was built in 1746 with further extensions thereafter.
Other members of the Royal Family who have used the Lodge for hunting include King George V, King George VI and the Duke and Duchess of York (later to become Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother).
Gairnshiel Lodge is now a family run hotel.
The Lodge is situated on the banks of the River Gairn.

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.

The Ghosts Of Gairnshiel Lodge
There have been sightings of the spirit of an old woman, who is thought to be a former owner of the Lodge.
The noise of marching men and the moving of horses and carts has been heard outside the Lodge, though nothing can be seen. The old military road, used during the Jacobite Risings, used to run past the Lodge. It is thought these are soldier ghosts.

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."
