Driving Information in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a very bicycle-friendly city, so be aware of cyclists. There are no toll roads in Scotland. Drive slowly in wooded areas since there could be wild animals on the road. Some country roads are too narrow for two vehicles, so anticipate oncoming traffic on bends and use safe passing places.
