Car hire in Edinburgh Airport makes the 8 mile journey into central Edinburgh a simple dash down the A8. Known for its annual Fringe festival, the population of the city more than doubles over festival time. Edinburgh is known for its celebrations, with Hogmanay in Edinburgh being the biggest street party in the world. Hiring a car allows access to everything from ornithology at The Scottish Sea bird Centre to Shark Diving in Fife. Though you will only be jumping into an aquarium rather than the chilly North Sea, you will be surrounded by the aquatic beasts who induce nightmares and adrenaline in equal measure.
