Edinburgh car rental, lodging, train to city

Jump to last reply

We are spending one night in late August in Edinburgh prior to departing by rented car to explore various regions of Scotland. We’ll have a bit more time in the city at the end of our trip, but just an afternoon and morning there initially. The idea of landing at the airport, picking up the rental car, getting comfortable with driving on the other side of the road, and making our way into Edinburgh to park and sightsee (all while acclimating to the time change) seems insane, especially given that it is the busiest, most crowded time of year to see Edinburgh with multiple festivals going on, etc.

I have not yet booked lodging or a car in the city, and am wondering if it would work to stay at a hotel near the airport or on the outskirts and take the train into Edinburgh for an afternoon and evening of sightseeing. We’d return to our hotel & car and depart from there the next morning. If this is feasible, can anyone suggest a more concrete plan including where we might stay that is convenient to the train and where we’d rent a car?

Thank you very much for any and all input!
