Explore Edinburgh with Budget Car Hire

Car hire with Budget in Edinburgh City

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and full of fascinating museums and galleries, historical sites and cultural attractions that will delight visitors of every age.

Start in the Old Town, where you’ll find the Royal Mile, the old and new parliament buildings and Holyrood PalaceFrom there, head up to Edinburgh Castle for the Scottish Crown Jewels and the National War Museum.

Don’t miss Edinburgh Zoo, where the impressive variety of animal species, includes two of the rare Giant Pandas.

Beyond Edinburgh

Scotland has some breath-taking countryside, from the Highlands of the north to the beaches and rolling green fields in the south. Make the most of your time and explore them in a Budget hire car.

A short drive from Edinburgh city is Melrose Abbey, where the heart of the famed Scottish hero Robert the Bruce is buried.  

The Highlands are full of history and stunning scenary, from Urquhart Castle to Glencoe, voted Scotland's most romantic glen. The road through Glen Coe takes you through the heart of an ancient volcano.

Why not search out some film locations in your Budget car rental?  Much of the filming of the third Harry Potter film took place close to Glencoe, and the Glenfinnan Viaduct has been seen in several movies.  After the huge success of The Da Vinci Code, Rosslyn Chapel, less than ten miles from Edinburgh city centre, has seen a surge in annual visitors. It is open every day except major holidays.

Further north, you’ll find Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain. And Loch Ness, home of the famous - or perhaps infamous - Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, makes for a great road trip over one or two days.  It is some three hours’ drive from Edinburgh city, but the remarkable wild moorland and mountain landscape makes it all the more worthwhile.

St. Andrews, a beautiful medieval town, home to the famous St. Andrews University, lies just across the Forth Road Bridge from Edinburgh. The suspension bridge is something of a wonder, stretching 2.5 kilometres across the river.
