Welcome to the Nairn U3A website
Nairn is a seaside town beside the Moray Firth in the north of Scotland, home to the Nairn Branch of the University of the Third Age (U3A). We meet regularly for a talk from a guest speaker, and a chat afterwards. There are also several small study groups which pursue various subjects. The Nairn group is very friendly - we welcome new members at any of our meetings.
