Edinburgh with Car Hire
It's easy to see why Edinburgh is the U.K.'s second-most popular visitor destination (after London), and it would be easy to spend all your time absorbing the sights and atmosphere of the city, but renting a car at Edinburgh Waverly Station means you can travel on to some of the wonderful attractions within easy driving distance.
Delve into the Highlands, see Fife's magical fishing villages, and don't miss Loch Lomond. Fife is only about 55km north of Edinburgh, and each of its towns and hamlets has a unique atmosphere and range of attractions. See Dunfermline, home to Dunfermline Abbey, where many Scottish royals (including Robert the Bruce) are buried. Some of our other favourites are East Neuk, Falkland Palace and Culross. Loch Lomond is 126km west of the city, and as Great Britain's largest inland body of water, home to the best fishing and watersports in Scotland.
Don't drop off your hire car until you have savoured the tranquility of the Trossachs, a swathe of sylvan valleys and tranquil lochs east of Ben Lomond. The Trossachs lie between the Highlands and the Lowlands to the north of Glasgow, east of Loch Lomond and west of Callander. The Highlands themsleves are a place apart, defined by primordial landscapes and fascinating history with a wealth of different wildlife and the opportunity to participate in any number of outdoor pursuits among the mountains, glens, islands, and beaches around Ben Nevis and Loch Ness. Drive 80km northeast of Edinburgh to find St Andrews, the impossibly picturesque coastal university town and acclaimed golf centre.
