Arriving by Car
If travelling from the south, take the A90 north
from Dundee. Arriving in Aberdeen take the A947 ring-road
signposted to Inverness and the Airport. Leave Aberdeen on
the A96 Inverness road. One kilometre after the second roundabout
turn left at a road signposted to the Institute (at this point,
the Institute is on the other side of the dual carriageway).
Turn left again into the Institute grounds, go under the A96
and turn right at a mini-roundabout signposted to Reception.
The journey from Edinburgh or Glasgow takes about three hours,
and, from Dundee, just over one hour.
If you miss the turn off the A96 then go to the next roundabout
(where the airport is signposted as a right turn) and double
back towards Aberdeen on the A96. The first left turn takes
you to the Institute. This route can also be used coming from
Inverness on the A96.
Arriving by Bus
Stagecoach Bluebird service 307 (Aberdeen to
Inverurie) runs every 20 minutes during the day and goes from
Aberdeen Station past the Institute. Services 10 (to Inverness)
and 220 (to Alford) take the same route but run less frequently.
The First Aberdeen service 27 is the Airport service which
runs roughly once an hour and takes a somewhat longer route
from Aberdeen Station past the Institute. The timetable is
on the First
Aberdeen web site.
For all these buses you should tell the driver you want to
get to the Rowett and should ring the bell (to remind him!)
in time to stop. When returning, you should hail the bus to
make sure it stops for you.
