Floating boatel in Edinburgh, permanently moored in a quiet spot in the city centre, perfect for a city escape with friends or family.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Docked in the heart of Edinburgh on the Union Canal, The Camillia is a purpose built, static wide-beam houseboat that serves as a floating boatel in the city. Created from scratch by expert craftsmen in Liverpool, the boat has been constructed using the highest quality steel and materials with sustainability in mind. You’ll find The Camillia permanently moored in the Lochrin Basin, just a 10-minute walk from the historic city centre.
The Camillia has been designed with comfort and luxury in mind. Step aboard and you’ll find a surprisingly spacious, open-plan living area with a lounge, dining area and kitchen. The interior is lined with oak, providing warm tones, welcoming you on board and complemented by the greens and yellows used in the furnishings. The nature of the wide-beam design and the lack of currents or tides means that there’s no need to worry about sea sickness for those not used to being on the water.
This spacious houseboat can cater for up to eight adults in three bedrooms and using the double sofa bed in the lounge. There are two double cabins and another bedroom with bunk beds, perfect for the kids but more than suitable to sleep two adults. There is a modern bathroom with a large shower and fluffy towels, robes and slippers waiting for you. You’ll also find the bathroom stocked with eco-friendly products.
The double cabin at the front of the boat has doors out onto a small terrace with a table and chairs for two, the perfect spot to enjoy your breakfast or a glass of something cold in the evening. There’s another deck at the rear of the boat with more outdoor seating, a barbecue and sun loungers for relaxed sunny afternoons.
Staying on a houseboat gives you the opportunity to explore another side of this vibrant city. Surrounded by colourful boats in this quiet corner of the city, you’ll discover a whole community of people living and working on the canal. Stop off at The Counter Coffee Boat and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee and some home baking on your walk into the city centre. Once you’re in the city centre, there’s no end to the places to visit and explore. Hike up Arthur’s Seat or Calton Hill for spectacular views of the city, wander through the picturesque cobbled streets of Old Town, explore the castle, walk up the Royal Mile or visit the Scottish National Gallery. The city really comes to life in August when it plays host to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world.
