Inverness is situated in the north of Scotland, at the mouth of the River Ness. The city has its share of interesting places to visit, such as the grounds of Inverness Castle and pubs with live traditional music, but the real draw of Inverness for most tourists is its usefulness as a base from which to explore and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding Scottish Highlands. Popular sights include Loch Ness, home to the fabled Loch Ness Monster, 13 miles to the south-west of Inverness and easily reached via the A82 road. The same road, if taken a further 50 miles, passes Ben Nevis, Britain's tallest mountain, while the Cairngorm Mountains are less than 30 miles to the south-west of Inverness and can be reached via the A9 road. The most practical and convenient way to enjoy the sights of the Scottish Highlands is by car, and many visitors arriving in Inverness by bus, plane or train hire a car at their earliest convenience. Enterprise Rent-A-Car have a branch in Seafield Road, near the junction of the A82 and A9 roads, with a good choice of vehicles for hire.
Enterprise’s vehicles are fuel efficient, and booking and prepaying your hired car or van is another money-saving option that Enterprise offers their customers. Booking in advance is also more convenient, as you can be sure that the vehicle of your choice will be immediately available when you arrive at the branch. Online deals are often offered and are worth checking out.
If the purpose of your visit to Inverness involves picking up and delivering a large quantity of goods or equipment, Enterprise have a good range of modern and reliable vans available. Whether you just need a small van with three cubic metres carrying space or a large Luton van with a capacity of 17 cubic metres, you can rely on Enterprise to provide what you need.

Choose the most suitable type for what you intend to do in and around Inverness.
With a population of less than 50,000, traffic congestion and parking are not a problem in Inverness. Three important trunk roads that terminate in the city, the A82, A9 and A96, link Inverness to the cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, respectively. The river Ness flows through the city and divides it in two parts, linked by several bridges. The city centre is located on the east side of the river.
