Known as the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, Inverness is the United Kingdom's most northerly city. The city straddles the River Ness and many people come to take advantage of the natural beauty and scenery of nearby Loch Ness, one of the most famous of the many Highland lochs. Inverness is a good base for a range of outdoor activities, including walking in the nearby Cairngorms National Park, golf, boat trips and even dolphin watching, in addition to day trips to Skye and Scotland's scenic West Coast. Nearby cultural highlights include Culloden Battlefield, the Gardens of Mey, former home of the Queen Mother, Urquhart Castle, on the banks of Loch Ness, and Cawdor Castle, supposedly one of the inspirations of MacBeth. Incredibly easy to get to, there are daily flights from London and the train from Edinburgh takes just over 3 hours.

Client Testimonials

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!

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!

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.

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!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning 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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
