Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family

Fly straight to the scenic Scottish Highlands with the great deals on Delta, British Airways and American. You can fly from Boston (BOS), New York (JFK), Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), Dallas (DFW), Seattle (SEA) and Orlando (MCO) to Inverness (INV) from $312 round-trip. Note some routes in this deal include multiple stops and long layovers while others require just one quick transfer. Also, you may have to pay extra fees for baggage and seat selection since most of the discounted fares book into basic economy.

There is no shortage of things to do in the Scottish Highlands. The northern region of the UK is known for its lush grass, steep cliffs and great hiking.
