Car hire in the UK (Scotland) - pricing

I am looking to book a holiday in Scotland for a couple of weeks at end of April/start of May.
Doing a search for 15 days car hire (economy size)  came in at around a prohibitive £1000! We are planning on Inverness airport, but I checked Glasgow airport as an alternative, prices very similar there.
I checked for prices in a couple of weeks' time and they're around £350-£400 at either location, much more in line with expectations.

Anyone know why the cost would more than double after a few months? Is this a pattern that has been observed and the prices come down nearer the time of rental?

PS I was looking using holidayautos and autoeurope (ignoring a firm called Easirent)
