How to find us:
Forres is located on the A96 Inverness-Aberdeen road. From here, take the A940 signposted for Grantown on Spey. At the mini roundabout, go straight ahead, remaining on the A940. At all subsequent road features – traffic lights and mini-roundabouts – go straight ahead, remaining on the A940 and eventually heading out of the town.
After two miles, you will pass a sign to Dallas Dhu Distillery but keep going on the A940. After another mile or so, the entrance to Altyre Estate is located on the left, marked by two small white pillars. Drive into the estate passing the Estate Office on the left, continue on the single track road, you will see the Campus buildings ahead of you. Please park your car at the rear.
* Please note that immediately after the entrance to Altyre there is a row of estate houses: if you pass these you have missed the entrance.
Follow the High Street north out of the town (A939 signposted to Nairn/Forres). Continue on this route for around seven miles. At junction signposted for Nairn, keep right and with the main route, which becomes the A940 to Forres after this turn-off. Remain on the A940 for around 11 miles. The entrance to Altyre Estate is on the right, marked by two small white pillars, immediately after passing a row of estate houses on the right.
Drive into the estate passing the Estate Office on the left, continue on the single track road, you will see the Campus building ahead of you. Please park your car at the rear of the Campus buildings.
We have a shop at 88 High Street in Forres, where our researchers work with local groups.
