Keith and Dufftown Heritage Railway Trains




The Keith and Dufftown Railway was opened in 2001. It is an 11 mile track which takes passengers through some of the most stunning scenery of Aberdeenshire. Passengers are often rewarded with glimpses of Scotland's wildlife such as deer and foxes and birds such as herons and buzzards. It takes you through the heart of Aberdeenshire's whisky trail and you can see distilleries such as the Chivas Brothers Strathisla Distillery, Glenfiddich Distillery and the Strathmill Distillery. Passengers can also see stunning views of Drummuir Castle and a rare view of the Glenfiddich Viaduct.

The railway, the trains and the cafe are all run and maintained by a team of volunteers.

The train is called The Spirit of Speyside, a 1959 diesel multiple unit that can carry 117 seated passengers. It takes passengers to and from Keith, Drummuir and Dufftown.

The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

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.
