I have a female quirky inkay with contrary. I want a different nature for example adamant most likely but would like to keep the ability contrary.

Now I know to pass down natures you let either the mother or the father with the nature you want the baby to have to hold an ever stone.

so if I breed it with a male ditto or other Pokemon with adamant holding an ever stone, will the baby have the ability contrary? Thank you for the help

Passing on Abilities is largely a matter of chance:
If you breed any Pokemon with a Ditto, the offspring will have any ability the non-Ditto parent can have. For it to have a chance of getting its Hidden ability though, the non-Ditto parent must have the Hidden Ability. This is no guarantee to getting it for the child though, but otherwise there isn't even a chance.
If you are trying to breed two Pokemon with neither being a Ditto the offspring will be of the same species as the mother (exceptions are the Nidoran-lines I think where both kinds may occur) and will also inherit her Ability. That means for the child to have a chance of having its Hidden Ability in this case, the mother must have it. The fathers Ability is of no matter in this case.
For your Inkay this means you can just breed it with a Ditto and some of the Offspring will have Contrary.

As your Inkay is female, you may breed it with whatever is compatible to it and still have a chance on getting a Contrary-Inkay
