If in Ireland we could do without rental, then in Scotland most likely, we had no choice. It was about 2 hours and a half of driving time between Glasgow and Eyemouth. So even if Marine Quest could’ve arranged to pick us up at the airport and a week later to drive us back, we would, probably, ended up paying more for those two runs than for a whole week of renting our own vehicle. Plus, we wanted to explore Scotland as much as we could, therefore a decision to get a vehicle was an easy one.

As a side note – I am not going to dwell on attractions of the Scottish landmarks, all I can tell you that it was an unforgettable experience and well worth 1000 miles that we managed to add to the vehicle’s odometer. We have visited St Abbs, Dunbar, Beadnell, Berwick-upon-Tweed and, two of my favorite, the castle of Bamburgh and the Highlands’ Cairngorms National Park.
