We will be in Edinburgh from August 19-23rd and are trying to figure out how to get around.
We have a couple of Scottish day trips planned and will need to get a rental car. Is it possible to park a rental car anywhere near the center of Edinburgh at this time of year? We wonder if we should just get two separate car rentals one on the 20th, one on the 23rd or try to keep the car and park it overnight - but this seems like it might be really tricky, especially with festival season on. How much hassle would it be to park outside of town - I see free parking at a mall outside of downtown and we could take a bus/train back into town. Any advice?
