Inverness is a city with a long history and whose roads long predate the automobile and, as such, those roads are often slightly small and narrow. Small vehicles are highly recommended as larger vehicles that are common to the U.S. will struggle to fit on these roads, which is why such cars are quite uncommon to see in Inverness. Additionally, parking will be much easier for small cars like sedans, coupes, and compacts as streetside parking spaces are not always the largest.
Drivers can expect to see 20 mph as the standard speed limit for residential streets in Inverness. Additionally, speed limits of 30 mph and 40 mph are seen on thoroughfares and larger streets in Inverness, while highways and expressways in Scotland have speed limits from 60 to 70 mph.
Petrol costs on average £1.18 ($1.49) per liter in Inverness, which equates to £4.47 ($5.64) per gallon of gas. This is fairly average when comparing the price to other cities in Europe such as Prague’s average price of 24.91 CZK ($5.47) or Budapest’s average price of 1381.53 HOF ($4.87).
Drivers will find that parking is widely available and much cheaper in Inverness compared to other Scottish towns. There are also plenty of parking lots and garages available in the more densely populated parts of town where streetside parking may be limited. Outside of the most popular areas, streetside parking is the predominant method of parking and is often easily and immediately available.
