My husband and I will be spending 4 days in Edinburgh in May and I am wanting to spend 2 of those days in Edinburgh and then am thinking about either going on a day tour using either Rabbie's or Heart of Scotland.
I am just trying to think if it would be better if we rented our own car and tried seeing some of the countryside or just go on a tour,what is recommended? Both my husband and I can drive a manual vehicle, I am 26 and he is 23 so I am not sure if he could drive the rented vehicle or if it would just be me.
Also, when looking at renting car is there all sort of hidden fees and such? I know when we were looking into renting a car in Ireland it was going to be a lot more than you originally thought so I wasn't sure if Scotland was similar.
If we were to do our own day trips where are some recommended place to drive to that are fairly easy to get to and are a nice drive? I was thinking Glencoe would be lovely, but I am not sure if that would be a decent drive or not.
