FROM THE SOUTH

If you are travelling from England, Wales or the Scottish Borders first find your way to the Glasgow or Edinburgh areas - you might like to make use of the AA ROUTE PLANNER - and then follow these directions:

From the GLASGOW AREA head north to Perth via the M80/M9/A9

From the EDINBURGH AREA head north to Perth via the A90/M90. As you approach Perth look out for signs directing you onto the A9 to Inverness

Once on the A9 head north towards AVIEMORE (initially the signposts will be for Inverness, which is beyond Aviemore). The A9 bypasses Aviemore itself but you will see the signs for the village. Do not go into Aviemore - stay on the A9

Still on the A9, about 2 miles beyond Aviemore turn right onto the A95

Follow the A95 until you see signs for the "Heather Centre". Turn left as though going to the Heather Centre but continue on past the entrance to the Centre

You are now at the bottom end of Skye of Curr Rd. The road takes a right hand bend and then continues more or less straight on uphill. Woodhead Cottage is on the right about 1 mile after turning off the A95. The cottage is reached via the entrance and driveway to the Shearer's house which is called 'Birch Cottage'. Look for the large stone at the entrance with 'The Shearers' carved into it - see site plan


FROM THE NORTH

From INVERNESS take the A9 south to Slochd Summit.

About 2 miles beyond the summit turn left onto the A938

Follow the A938 to Dulnain Bridge. In the centre of the village (at the Post Office) turn right, cross the bridge and immediately turn right. You are now in Skye of Curr Rd

Follow the road for about 1 mile. Woodhead Cottage is on the left and is reached via the entrance and driveway to the Shearer's house which is called 'Birch Cottage'. Look for the large stone at the entrance with 'The Shearers' carved into it - see site plan


FROM THE NORTH EAST

From ABERDEEN take the A96 to Keith

From Keith take the A95 heading towards Grantown-on-Spey

The A95 bypasses Grantown. Near Grantown there are two roundabouts within a short distance of each other. At each of these continue on the A95

About 1 mile after the second roundabout turn right onto the A938

Follow the A938 to Dulnain Bridge. In the centre of the village (at the Post Office) turn left, cross the bridge and immediately turn right. You are now in Skye of Curr Rd

Follow the road for about 1 mile. Woodhead Cottage is on the left and is reached via the entrance and driveway to the Shearer's house which is called 'Birch Cottage'. Look for the large stone at the entrance with 'The Shearers' carved into it - see site plan
