car retals

Visiting Scotland this fall 2016. Would like to take the ferry from Belfast to Cairnryan then to Edinburgh. Is there any place at the port to rent a car? Also what is the driving distance from the port to Edinburgh?

Having a car in Edinburgh is not a great idea. Parking can be problematic. However there is a Hertz place at the Stena terminal.

It is about 125 miles or approx three hours drive.

Yes Hertz (at least, may be more) have an office at Cairnryan. The drive to Edinburgh is just over 3 hours

Quicker and cheaper to fly direct Belfast to Edinburgh and hire a car when you want to leave Edinburgh where parking is difficult and expensive
