Choose National for car hire in Edinburgh that you can rely on. If you're planning a visit to the capital city of Scotland then book your car hire online with National and your vehicle will be waiting for you when you arrive.
Edinburgh is Scotland's capital city, though not its most populous. Its comparatively small size endears it to its visitors and makes it the popular tourist trap that it is.
The castle is at the heart of the city and is omnipresent in the skyline from almost everywhere in the city and is particularly enchanting when illuminated on a dark, foggy, evening. It is well worth visiting for a closer look around. There are a number of popular attractions within the castle itself, including the Crown Jewels and the popular One o'clock Gun, which has been fired almost every day since 1861 at (you guessed it) one o'clock.
While Edinburgh is good to visit at any time of the year, there are two popular events that really pull in the tourists; the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Hogmanay Street Party.
The Fringe Festival is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place throughout August attracting performers from the world over. Arts and comedy are the main attractions during the Fringe, however the city also allows the city's variety of pubs and clubs to open later, allowing visitors to party in to the small hours of the morning.
If parties are your thing then Edinburgh's Hogmanay Street Party is for you. As Edinburgh's primary New Year's Eve party it takes place on Edinburgh's main shopping street, Princes Street and its surrounding gardens underneath the majestic castle and attracts revellers from around Scotland and the rest of the world.
