My husband and I are hiring a car in Glasgow for a trip through the highlands and returning through Stirling. The last few days of our trip are in Edinburgh. Would we be better off returning our car to Glasgow airport and taking a train back to Edinburgh? Or, taking the car to Edinburgh (paying the 1 way fee) and then returning to Glasgow airport by train the final day of our trip?
How long does it take to travel between Glasgow and Edinburgh? How much time should we allow? Our flight on the final day of our trip leaves at 2:45pm in the afternoon on a Friday.
We are trying to decide how best to manage travel at the end of our trip.
Also, what is the best type of train ticket to purchase for a simple trip between Edinburgh and Glasgow (or potentially Glasgow to Edinburgh roundtrip)?
Thank you all of your assistance! We are very excited for our trip!
