Our last night in Scotland will be spent in Oban. The next day we will take an an afternoon train to York, and plan to arrive in York around 4PM. I'm looking at options for the easiest place to drop a rental car. Below are the options I've come up with, but am open to other ideas.
- Drop car at Edinburgh airport (and avoid driving in downtown Edinburgh), take Air Links bus to Downtown catch 1:30 train (what time would we have to drop the car?)
- Drop car down town near train station. We'll have GPS, but driving in traffic on the wrong side of the road might be more stress than we want
- Drop car in Stirling, Take cab or bus to train station (2 miles away). Catch noon train from Stirling, connect in Edinburgh to York. If we left Oban at 7:00 or 7:30, would we have time to see Stirling Castle before the train, or is that too rushed?
One other questions, if google maps says 2hrs 15 minutes Oban to Stirling, in reality, how many extra minutes should we really plan on?
