We're going to be visiting next year due and I keep hearing stories about how bad it is to drive in Edinburgh. Plus we have that pesky driving on the opposite side of the road issue. Now I'm nervous about taking a rental car anywhere near downtown (I'm sure any area pedestrians might be equally as nervous). ;-) 1. is driving in Edinburgh really that bad? and 2. are there car parks on the outskirts of Edinburgh one might be able to leave a car at? Wondering if we should park them outside the city for a few days and take a taxi in.
