We have a top of the range electric macerator toilet on board however all toilet paper etc must be disposed of into the bin provided to avoid blockages.Does the boat move?
No, this is static accommodation.How central is the boat?
5-7 minute walk to Edinburgh CastleHow noisy is the boat?
We are located in a secluded pedestrianised area of the canal and so is much quieter than being on a main road. Weekends an be noisier. You may also hear some pumps operating when using the facilities on the boat.
