Car drop in Inverness

We are planning to pick up a car in Edinburgh and eventually drop it off in Inverness to catch the Caledonian Sleeper down to London. It looks like most of the agencies have drops at the Thistle Hotel or the Airport. Which is the better choice when going directly to the train station?

Thistle Hotel then a taxi or bus into town.

Can't say which is better but I have had good luck picking up and then dropping off at the airport followed by a cab to the train station. Painless especially since I didn't want to drive into town.

Budget car hire have a service at the Railway station (Railway Terr), but it shuts at 17.30 I think, so may not suit you if you want to drop it off right before catching the sleeper.

The thistle is much closer than the airport and a short hop in a taxi
