To help travelers discover more of Scotland, Avis Car Hire enlisted Edinburgh based travel blogger Sonja Bolger to explore and discover 10 hidden gems that are one day's drive away from the capital.
Taking in a variety of Scottish culture, food, and art, the guide follows Bolger as she drives to and explores 10 unique destinations near the capital — admiring the Kelpies, sampling the salmon at the Luss Smokehouse, buying local art at the Stirling Art Store, and more — and charts them on an interactive guide-map on the Avis Inspires blog.
Each destination has an article or video that goes into further detail.
