Information about Mintlaw village in Aberdeenshire with facilities, parks, places to visit and where to stay:
The picturesque village of Mintlaw is at the heart of the North East of Grampian. Surrounding towns include Fraserburgh, Peterhead and the City of Aberdeen. Mintlaw grew from the 18th Century when houses and facilities were built for farm workers and their families in nearby farming and wild stock estates. Though the farm estates are largely gone (some are now what is now Aden Country Park) the village has grew and has its own schools and Academy, Town Hall, surgery, chemist, Post Office, banks, bakers, garages, grocery shops, newsagents, takeaways and restaurants, hairdresser, butchers and The Pitfour Arms Hotel.
Attractions in Mintlaw include a beautifully maintained Market Square Garden with War Memorial, the Aden Country Park, Farming Museum and the Happy Plant Garden Centre which serves delicious meals. The Aden Country Park has some relaxing walks and there is a disused railway line that has been converted to a cycle and walking path.

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."
