Monymusk Castle, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland - History and Ghosts
The History Of Monymusk Castle
Monymusk Castle is a 16th Century Tower House. It was originally owned by the Priory of Monymusk. The casket which contained the relics of Saint Columbia, the Monymusk Reliquary, was kept at the Priory. At Bannockburn, in the year 1314, the Reliquary was carried by the Scottish Army during the battle. The Monymusk Reliquary is now stored at the National Museum of Scotland.
After the Reformation the Castle and lands was owned by the Forbes family and then passed onto the Grant family in 1711.

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 Monymusk Castle
Monymusk Castle is inhabited by several ghosts:
The library is haunted by a man reading the books. When the spirit is approached he vanishes.
A Grey Lady phantom appears in the nursery. It comes out of the cupboard and appears to be checking on any children who are sleeping there.
A red haired ghost in a kilt has been nicknamed The Party Ghost because it appears during parties where he mingles amongst the guests. The same spirit is thought to be responsible for the loud sounds of merriment and footsteps on the stairs when no-one else is in the Castle.

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."
