If this is your first time driving a car in Edinburgh, our advice is to stay calm and take your time. As already mentioned, remember to drive on the left. We also recommend for your own peace of mind to consider hiring a GPS to ensure you can navigate around Edinburgh with ease (ask at the rental counter for details).

There are many roundabouts throughout the UK, they are actually relatively easy to manoeuvre around (once you get your head around them) and they help to keep the flow of traffic running smoothly. There are two key things to remember when approaching a roundabout: get in the correct lane for the direction you are want to drive (left, straight or right) and always give way to the driver on your right.

When travelling on the motorways or dual carriageways, the speed limit is 70 mph (112 km/h) and 60 mph (97 km/h) on single carriageways. The speed limit outside the city ranges from 40 mph (64 km/h) to 50 mph (80km/h) and 30 mph (48 km/h) in built-up areas unless started otherwise. For your own safety it is important that you obey the local traffic and speed restrictions.

Should you require any assistance while in Edinburgh, the UK emergency services can be contacted by calling 999 for police, fire fighters and medical services.
