Founder & CEO
The estate is about an hour’s drive from the city of Inverness. My wife, Maria, and I were taken there by Ted Innes Ker, the founder of Ossian, a company that provides unique travel experiences in the Scottish Highlands. As his Jaguar SUV masterfully hugged the winding country roads, the former professional golfer says that his young firm can tailor luxurious travel itineraries, including a variety of active adventure tours. He works with a number of castles and estates in the area, including those with British royal provenance. Some are private residences that are occasionally opened to the public under the right circumstances. Ker, who also has royal pedigree, can make it happen.
Ted Innes Ker, son of the Duke of Roxburghe, launched Ossian early this year, to create bespoke adventures for discerning individuals visiting Scotland. He says: “Having grown up in Scotland and lived here the majority of my life, I have been fortunate enough to experience many extraordinary parts of this wonderful country. I wanted to set up a company to give opportunities to a select group that want the absolute finest the country can provide.”
