Car and Van hire in Inverness
On Scotland’s Northeast coast, Inverness is situated where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth. Inverness is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands and is a city full of different attractions both in the city and in the surrounding areas - from the Inverness castle, to the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery which portrays the development of the highlands. Steeped in ancient history, Inverness also became the set of the Gaelic King Macbeth, later to become a renowned Shakespeare play.
Discovering Inverness is best done by car, hiring a car gives you the ability to explore everything from visiting the city centre to the Highlands. Hiring a car gives you the freedom to visit the Loch Ness – the 23 mile freshwater lake, reportedly home to the mysterious Loch Ness Monster. Renting a car lets you travel freely between the ancient city to the wild, rugged countryside and along the coastline.
As a result of being on the banks of the River Ness, Inverness is home to many a delightful river café and restaurants. From cultural attractions to shopping and combining both traditional and modern, Inverness is a unique city which is constantly flourishing and developing.
With branches located within the city as well as in the airport, Enterprise Rent-a-Car ensures locations to make car hire convenient for you. However, if you can’t get to one of our branches, we can pick you up! Book online or in our branch to arrange the vehicle of your choice or for us to collect you.
As such a thriving city of such diversity from natural beauty to some incredible architecture, visiting Inverness is the perfect opportunity to explore one of Scotland’s seven cities as well as discovering the natural beauty on offer. The attractions in Inverness reflect the diversity that this city has to offer.
Travelling to Inverness?
The River Ness & Loch Ness
The centre of the Highlands capital, the River Ness is part of the natural beauty, a picnic on the banks in summer or watching it from the hills above by the castle. The Loch Ness Cruise is an incredible activity for an afternoon – encouraging you to see the different attractions spread out across the 23 mile river. The tranquillity of the river provides a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday business from being in a city. Driving around the lake is a beautiful drive and also advisable in all weathers as you are able to see the lake in such different states whatever time of the year it is.
Overlooking River Ness, Inverness Castle was originally a 12th century earth and timber structure. However, the castle as it is today was built in 1836. Although the castle has now been converted to a court house, the grounds of the castle are still open. As a consequence of being located at the top of Castle Hill, the grounds have breath taking views. The nearby museum displays the history of Inverness and the changes to a city and the use of the ports.
