Edinburgh Car Rental



Renting a car in Edinburgh – a guide from the Car Rental UK
The Scottish capital, Edinburgh is teaming with life – and is arguably one of the most predominant cities in the North of Britain.
A cultural epicentre, Edinburgh offers a whole host of historic sites, artistic events, and fine dining to explore.
The city is connected to the East Coast of the UK via the A1(M); and a short trip to Glasgow on the M8 connects you to most cities in the West via the M6 and the Lake District.

What can you do in Edinburgh?
What can’t you do in Edinburgh?!
We can think of many way in which you can utilise an Edinburgh car rental. With a population of nearly half a million people, you’re bound to find many attractive things to do and see.
But as much as we’d love to, we can’t list absolutely all of them. So, here’s our top three!

#1 – Edinburgh Castle
Edinburgh Castle is an obvious yet must-see location during a trip to Edinburgh.
A beautiful setting no matter the weather, this historic castle boasts a fortress which dominates Edinburgh’s skyline – so it’s amazing to look at day or night!
Built in 1633, the Castle has occupied this spot for centuries, and offers some phenomenal views across the city.
And being open until 6pm every day, there’s plenty of time to take in the scenery.

#2 – The Edinburgh Festival Fringe
So, this is a more seasonal destination. But nonetheless, the Edinburgh Fringe is one of the biggest festivals in the world, with performers travelling from all corners of the globe to showcase their talents just for you.
A family-friendly event, the Fringe provides entertainment for all ages. Included in the line-up each year are children’s shows, comedy, dance, theatre, circus and cabaret, musicals, opera, as well as events and exhibitions.
What’s more, many of these shows are also FREE! Renting a car in Edinburgh has never seemed so good.

#3 – Hadrian’s Wall
Why not really put your car rental to good use, and take the two hour drive from Edinburgh to Hadrian’s Wall?
Constructed during the Roman Empire in the 2nd Century AD, this amazing construction spans 73 miles.
Though a slightly longer journey than other attractions available in Edinburgh City centre, this site offers several locations from which you can start your day.
So, pack a decent pair of walking boots, and enjoy an experience like no other.
