Hello fellow travelers!
We are planning a trip next year, most likely around Sep/October. We have been to Edinburgh before and absolutely loved it!! We should be there for 4 days or so, it's one of our favorite places in Europe. We are hoping when we return next year to enjoy a trip out into the highlands, and we feel like we would probably prefer to just rent our own car for the day instead of joining a tour group ( tour groups aren't really our thing).
So a few questions:
-Is is difficult to rent a car? Do we need any special insurance/international drivers license or anything? We are both over 25 so no issue there.
-what would you suggest to see? We love castles, whisky,exploring and just the general beauty that we have seen in pictures that the highlands have to offer.
-Is it possible to scoot around just for the day and enjoy, or is it necessary to stay overnight somewhere? ( I suppose this depends on how far we go from Edinburgh)
Last question, and we would take the train for this, is a day trip to Glasgow worth it? It seems only an hour away, anything worth seeing there?
Thanks in advance and Happy Traveling!
