Fancy staying somewhere different on your trip to Edinburgh? If you like to stay central but also like canals and waterfront homes, this houseboat could be for you. There are no water tides or currents and as the boat is static and you will not feel any movement at all. Although it's on the canal, it is only a 2 minutes walk to the Edinburgh Filmhouse, Conference Centre and a 12 minute walk to Princes Street. A 15 minute stroll brings you to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh's majestic Castle.

In the immediate area are plenty of restaurants and cafes such as the Cargo restaurant literally directly opposite boat. The entire boatel has central heating ensuring you are nice and cosy even in the coldest of Scottish weather.

Suitable for up to 6 adults and two small children, it's ideal for a family or group. Measuring a massive 60 feet, she is a wide beam houseboat with 6'4" of headroom for your sole use.  She has 2 beautifully dressed double cabins (bedrooms) with plasma DVD TV, free view, wireless headphones, hairdryers, strengtheners & electric blankets. There is a recessed area to the stern of the houseboat with child sized bunk beds measuring 2'6" x 5'4". A double sofa bed is located in the lounge area for larger groups. She is moored in a WIFI hotspot.  A 36"plasma TV with free view, DVD, HIFI, iPod docking, reclining electric massage chair , extensive CD , DVD & book library, honesty bar and much more for your relaxation.
