Doing a 12 day trip in late June. Spouse and I are retired, and our 25 year old intellectually disabled son is coming with us. Arriving and departing from Glasgow. Having done a 3 week Irish trip where I drove over 2,000 km (but have no recollection of many places, since it seems all I saw was road...) I wanted to not drive this time. And given the train and bus transport systems, Scotland seems perfect. I've been able to map out a car free visit to Edinburgh and of course around Glasgow. Between AirBnB and a solid hotel, that portion works. But my wife has ancestors from the Elgin area and wants to spend 2 days in the area seeing where her people came from. I get that, and think it would be fun. I can get us to and from there via rail or bus from Glasgow and I can find some AirBnB places that work for us in Elgin itself, so that part is hopefully under control.
So why am I posting here? Because I'm looking for advice or recommendations regarding transport for the time we are in the Elgin area. This is the one time having a car makes sense, but there have to be other options. Local taxi company that would take us around? Local guide for hire? And if a car rental becomes the only way, any recommendations or cautions? If I rented, I'd likely want to pick up there, and return near Glasgow airport.
I'm all ears for any advice. Thanks
