Journey into The Scottish Highlands

11 days from £3,045 / $4,872 per person

The Scottish Highlands are considered the last great wilderness of Europe and this 11 day tour takes you on a journey to many of its highlights. Start your journey in Edinburgh where you will stay at The Balmoral. Perfectly located at the top of Princes Street, this historical hotel has been part of Edinburgh’s skyline for well over 100 years. Journey on from Edinburgh into the Scottish Highlands where you'll stay at Inverlochy Castle, a grandiose county house hotel set in the foothills of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain. In addition to its Michelin-starred restaurant, Inverlochy Castle plays host to a wide range of sporting activities including mountain biking, sailing, archery and abseiling. From Inverlochy Castle travel up to Loch Ness where you will stay at the cosy Loch Ness Lodge. This family-run hotel will make you feel instantly at home and is well placed for a range of sightseeing in the region. Take a boat ride on Loch Ness and visit the ruins of Urquhart Castle or alternatively spend your first afternoon at leisure. The following day visit Culloden Battlefield, the famous site of the last bloody battle of the Jacobite Rising. For your remaining time you may wish to take a day trip to either the Isle of Skye and Eileen Donan Castle or spend the day exploring at your leisure. Your next desintation will be Alladale Wilderness Lodge & Reserve, a remote and beautiful retreat set in a landscape of dramatic glens, lochs and forests. Spend two nights at this idyllic property before returning to Inverness for your flight home. This tour includes luxury vehicles for all transfers and private Blue Badge guides or equivalent for all sightseeing tours.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
