Located eight miles north-east of the city, Inverness Airport is relatively small, handling around 600,000 passengers a year. It is however the main gateway to the north of Scotland. The majority of flights are domestic, but there are some international ones as well.
Inverness Airport car hire
It would be almost unimaginable to fly to Inverness Airport without then hiring a car. The city certainly has its attractions, but perhaps its main appeal is the access it provides to the rest of the Scottish Highlands.
Starting from Inverness, you might head to the Cairngorms, Britain’s largest national park, or to the remote northern coastline. Loch Ness is of course right on the doorstep and Europcar offers hourly car and van hire if you’re trying to make the most of a short trip. However, that is just one of northern Scotland’s many breath-taking bodies of water and it’s certainly worth heading further afield.
You could, if you wanted, do nothing more than drive around. One of the most sparsely populated areas in Europe, the unique and rugged Highlands landscape has an appeal all of its own. Car rental will allow you to explore the mountains, rivers and lochs at your own pace, taking in the scenery and stopping whenever the mood takes you. One way hire is another option, allowing you to fly in before taking a leisurely journey home by car.
