Temporarily out of stock

A cornucopia of the peculiar and marvellous elements from Aberdeenshire's history.

Duncan Harley takes the reader on a grand tour of the curious and the bizarre, the strange and the unusual from Aberdeenshire's past. Read about the Beatles first, and almost their last, tour of the North-east, the Deeside artist who tended plaster sheep, and the strange tale of the Typhoid Queen. Learn about Hitler's secret Bunker at Stonehaven, the doomed Marquis of Montrose, and the mysterious Mound of Death at Inverurie. Along the way you'll also meet scandalous residents, determined inventors, and Royal personages galore. The A-Z of Curious Aberdeenshire is guaranteed to enthrall both residents and visitors alike.

Writer, theatre critic and photographer Duncan Harley has long had a keen interest in the folklore and history of the north-east of Scotland, and is a regular contributor and columnist for both Leopard Magazine and Aberdeen Voice. He lives in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire.
