Rugged Scotland

Drive through areas famed for landscape and unspoiled breath-taking scenery. Discover rich farmland in the South, historic houses and castles, and the islands sitting on the most north westerly edge of Europe, the Outer Hebrides. Exploring Scotland is easy. In the countryside, the roads are excellent, well signposted and largely toll free. Distances between towns are short and driving is on the left hand side of the road, same as in New Zealand.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a minimum 1.4 litre for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.
