We are flying in to Edinburgh and spending two days in the city. We plan on picking up a rental car at Waverly station at 7am on Saturday for a 4 day drive around the highlands. Can anyone advise on the drive out of Edinburgh from Waverly station?
We realize that it is best not to drive in Edinburgh, but prefer the ease of picking up the car only a few blocks away from our hotel. I have a lot of experience driving a standard shift and drove around Ireland a few years ago.
There can't be much traffic at 7am on a Saturday morning, right? Is there still a lot of construction work going on in the city center that we should avoid? Any advice would be very welcome. thanks.
