Scotland is a visually stunning country to drive around. There are great cities to explore but the highlands are certainly the big draw for me. I adore this part of the world and visit whenever possible.
The last time I brought a group of old school biddies with me and rather than us all hiring different cars, I decided to look into the people carrier hire options. We worked out the individual cost and frankly it was a bit daft for us all to hire a car when the savings could be put to good use. I found a great hybrid 7 seater car rental. It took us a while to agree on a model but eventually with some compromise we came to a decision.
Plus of course a designated driver system is helpful for those of us that like to sample a few ales. Just left and already cant wait to get back again.
