Hertz in Inverness

Inverness, traditionally regarded as the capital of the Highlands, is a pretty, prosperous part of Scotland, close to the legendary Loch Ness. Perhaps the area of Scotland which best reflects the romantic rolling green image of Scotland that most visitors have, Europe’s last great wilderness is, without doubt, one of the most visually spectacular sights in all of the UK.

All of the main routes through the Highlands pass through Inverness at some point, so it serves as a great launch pad for wider regional discovery. Just pick up your hire car at our convenient locations at Inverness Railway Station, Inverness Airport or throughout the city and you’ll be on the road in no time.

You can follow the breath-taking and scenic North Coast 500 route, which starts and finishes in Inverness, or go your own way; there are countless opportunities for discovery across the Highlands. But make sure you also set aside some time for Inverness itself to enjoy the gentle charms of this small, but perfectly formed, city.

A quick guide to Inverness

Inverness has good looks married to a warm welcome – making it the perfect Highland base for your visit to these shores. This small city has a big heart and much to offer those who venture here, from local cuisine to the marvellous lochs and landscape all around.

Castles and cuisine

The city’ skyline is dominated by its red sandstone castle, a Victorian replacement for the original 12th-century castle built on a ridge to the east of the present structure. Below the castle is Inverness Museum and Art Gallery which includes a wealth of exhibits outlining the social and natural history of the Highlands.

Treat yourself to a bit of fine dining in Inverness’ extensive selection of high-quality establishments. Across the river from the castle is Riva, a stylish eatery that specialises in Italian delicacies, and Rocpool Restaurant, which couples an energetic contemporary atmosphere with resplendent river views for diners. After dinner, take a short walk south to find the city’s impressive Eden Court Theatre,which boasts a full card of fantastic dance, drama and music throughout the year. Round off your evening with a serene stroll along the banks of the River Ness to Bught Park, overlooking the Ness Islands.

Fantastic beasts

Scotland isn’t all hills and sprawling fields. Venture out and you’ll find that the Highlands has some other secrets to share with you. Discover the large pods of dolphins diving in the Moray Firth, stretching east from Inverness. Scores of these beautiful animals take to the estuary every year, and there’s a very good chance of seeing them, particularly between June and August. Several companies run dolphin-spotting boat trips from Inverness but it’s also worth heading to Chanonry Point, on the southern side of the Black Isle, one of the best dolphin-spotting sites in Europe.

Head south and arrive at one of Scotland’s most famous and popular attractions, Loch Ness, Britain’s deepest body of fresh water is one of the most scenic sights in all of Scotland. Have your camera at the ready; this is one of the world’s most picture-perfect places and you’ll want to remember it. Of course, the spellbinding scenery is not the only reason the loch is such a popular attraction. Visitors flock here every year hoping for a glance of its legendary inhabitant, the Loch Ness Monster. Spend some time gazing out over the hauntingly calm waters for signs of a ripple.

Highway to Heaven

Sensational scenery and eye-catching views is what the Highlands is all about, so take some time to drive the North Coast 500. Scotland’s answer to Route 66, it’s acclaimed as one of the world’s great scenic drives. Bringing together just over 500 miles (516 to be exact) of stunning scenery, the NC500 follows the main roads along the coast of the Northern Highlands. From Inverness, it goes across to Kyle of Lochalsh, the gateway to the misty and magical Isle of Skye, up the magnificent west coast to Durness, along the north coast to John O’Groats then back down the east coast to finish in Inverness. With ancient castles, pristine beaches and staggering scenery at every turn, it’s not hard to understand why the North Coast 500 proves so perennially popular with drivers.

Mountain highs

Less than an hour south-east from Inverness is Aviemore, gateway to the magnificent Cairngorms, Britain’s second-highest mountain range and largest national park. The Cairngorms offer excellent hiking, watersports, mountain biking and winter skiing opportunities at every turn. The park is also a refuge for some of Britain’s rarest wildlife, including ospreys, golden eagles, red squirrels and pine martens. Nearby is Strathspey, one of Scotland’s busiest tourist areas, famous for salmon fishing and whisky. With all of this natural goodness awaiting you, car rental in Inverness is essential.

Driving in and around Inverness

The centre ofInverness is small and compact, sat at the heart of one of the most beautiful parts of the UK – car rental here is vital if you’re going to really make the most of the Highlands. We have pick-up locations in town and also atInverness Airport, which is a short drive away, just 15-km east on the A96 before turning off onto the B9039.

The A82 runs south-west from Inverness along the west shore of Loch Ness to the pretty village of Fort Augustus at its southern extremity. From here, you could complete a circuit of the loch by taking the quiet and picturesque B862/852, which runs along the eastern shore from Fort Augustus back up to Inverness.

The A82 then continues from Fort Augustus, through the beautiful Great Glen, to Fort William, the gateway to the Western Highlands and self-proclaimed ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’. It’s overshadowed by Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. It’s just over an hour and a half drive from Inverness to Fort William, from where the A82 continues south all the way to Glasgow, skirting the shores of beautiful Loch Lomond.

Equally scenic is the A9 which runs south-east, through the Cairngorms and Perthshire to reach Perth, from where the M90 heads south to Edinburgh. The A9 also runs north from Inverness, hugging the spectacular north-east coastline, to Thurso.

When driving in the UK you’ll be on the left hand side of the road and overtaking on the right. Road sign distances are shown in miles and speeds in miles per hour. Mobile phone use is not allowed while driving and seatbelts are essential for the driver and all passengers. Our local teams will be happy to help you with any other questions you may have about driving in the area.
