My husband and I are Americans and we are planning to pick up our rental car in Inverness for a tour of the Highlands area, the Isle of Skye and then back to Stirling and Edinburgh airport. We have travelled in Europe but never by car.
I am planning to use Inverness as a base for travel in the Highlands and I am currently trying to figure out a place to stay.
We will be new to driving on the left and I would really like to pick a place that will have parking and will also not be awful to drive to or out of Inverness for day trips.
So with that long preface(sorry), how difficult is it to drive in Inverness if you are not used to driving on the left? Are there areas we should avoid simply because the streets are narrow or convoluted?
I would like to have a place to stay that was within walking distance to the center city for strolling and dinner. That is, I want to park the car where we are staying and access Inverness on foot, saving the car for day trips out of Inverness.
Is Rocpool Reserve reasonably accessible by road?
Are there other places to stay or areas with easier roads to drive? (Am I worrying too much?).
We drive a lot in the States and live in St. Louis, Missouri.
Thanks for reading this!
